recently moved from the East Village uptown (upper east side, actually), and i am looking for a restaurant for a birthday dinner for my wife.
thoughts on these places. ouest looks good, but i read some reviews that say it is "stuffy" - is that true? we don't really like that feel, we are in our early 30s and like going out in the EV (ssam bar, frank, etc.) but want to try somwhere uptown).
any similar recs on the ues?
