(I posted a version of this question a couple of weeks ago, but the place that looked like the best choice (Eleven Madison Park) is not available on the day I need)
Was originally looking at UWS, but nothing looked great.
Just looking for good, non-skimpy, non omelette-y, non frou-frou, but 'festive" (sorry to keep using the word!).
Love Asian food, but we eat so much of it that I thought we'd try something else. Asian influences are fine though... Otherwise, most any cuisine fine (except seafood)
