Sorry I had not gotten back sooner -- Only had moments here and there and still in a rush -- But a few answers and words for now.
Timowitz: Yes it is a Sunday, the 17th and just about all those restaurants suggested are open Sunday -- Sadly Annise is not. It appears JoJo is not, but I'm still looking forward to your review.
Of course, I called GT, but they are booked for the 17th. :( What is it with that place? They told me 28 days. I must have been lucky to get a table at Gotham with only a couple of weeks notice. Never been to GT -- Is it small? Few tables? I'll have to really plan ahead to have dinner there.
Higgins: I've booked Chez Michallet for this weekend. It's a place that's been on my 'dying to try' list and I had reservations last Summer, which I had to cancel. Thank you for the reminder!
At present I'm undecided between Alison on Dominick, Veritas, Eleven Madison Park and Picholine. Anyone know which one is more quiet than the other? --- More romantic than the other? --- More relaxing than the other?
I hope they aren't booked at this point -- I know it's late to call. But I will tomorrow.
Thank you all for responding!
Cakes: If I proposed and ultimately got married, I'd be breaking the law, since I'm married and female, in the case you thought I was male. :) But thank you for the well wishes!
Actually, quiet romantic places are my favorite. And since I'll only be staying in the city (from LI) a couple of days this time and don't know when I'll be back for an extended stay -- just too busy through to Summer, I want the dinner to be perfect, included in that is the ambiance and opportunity for after dinner drinks, with no rush and some great food.
