I made a reservation at the RTR on an impulse for my anniversary dinner...I'm only in town for a few nights (from LA) and was looking for something romantic and different for my husband and I's wedding anniversary. I looked the Russian Tea room up after watching an episode of friends...(yes that is how out of touch with NYC I am) and went to their website...it looked perfect! Then I went to Yelp and am now doubting my decision! I'm looking for a landmark iconic/romantic/sexy restaurant that is purely New York! I like dark settings which is why the red and dark light interior of RTR struck my fancy.
So should I cancel my reservation @ the Tea Room? Any other suggestions in midtown/Theatre district area? Doesn't have to be Russian food, although I was really looking forward to that since I've never tried it.
