We had made reservations for our anniversary dinner at Pazo for tomorrow night, coming in from Philly. I called to ask a question a few days ago and was informed that, as of a week before, they were closed and "would open again in a few months as something else". They knew it was our anniversary and that we would be coming from out of town and we received nary a courtesy phone call! We would have been stranded in Midtown with no place to eat! Luckily I got a reservation at Eleven Madison Park which I think will be a better experience in the long run.
Also a question. Are there any nice bars in the area of Eleven Madison Park? How is Cibar? Worth going to for quiet, romantic drinks? Also, anyone been to The Water Club (East River & 34th St) and is it worth slepping a cab out there for drinks on their rooftop deck? Thanks for any help.
