NYC Visitor: Susur or Chiado?

RCC | Mar 15, 2007 08:13 AM

We’ll be visiting from NYC and have only 1 weekend night, a Friday, for a nice fine dining. Budget is not an issue and we like places that have delicious offerings and good service – anything from nouveau over-the-top type dining to country rustic plates.

A quick research has narrowed our choice to either:

Susur - while not an overly enthusiatic fan of Asian fusion (that’s what I think this restaurant is all about, somebody please correct me if I’m wrong) I find this intriguing, well reviewed and, admittedly, has some tempting menu selection when I looked up their website; and

Chiado – There are enough Portuguese restaurants in the NY metro area with lots of bad ones, some are just OK and none are really exceptional (imho). We've been to Chiado before, about 8 years ago, and it was one of our most unforgettable experience in TO and we definitely wouldn't mind doing this, again.

Which one should we go for?

Other suggestions are most welcome?

Thank you
