We have gone to Artisanal for the past three years for NY Eve dinner (we eat around 8 so we can go off to parties afterward) but I was thinking this year to go to Gramercy Tavern but they are not open at all that day. So now what - do I go to Artisanal again because the cheese is divine or do I venture out? I have heard good things about Hearth but don't know if they are open. I want hearty French or Italian and we both love cheese. Anyone?
