This is for a friend of mine. I recommended Atelier based on vague recollections of having heard something good about it, but was stuck for other options given the geographic limitation. Someplace new would be good, since they've been repeatedly to a lot of the usual suspects, esp. on the UWS (e.g., Ouest, Compass, etc.), and wouldn't think of them as special occasion places. My friend's also not a fan of Jean-Georges, just to save anyone who might recommend that the effort. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
