The setting: coming in from Philadelphia for a romantic post V-day weekend (15th and 16th) to celebrate many things with my lovely wife. Dinner @ 8:00 before seeing Freddy Cole at Dizzy's for an 11:30 show. Want a great meal in a beautiful and romantic setting, with the emphasis being on the food first and foremost (but the wife likes stylish settings too).
So which fits the bill better, Telepan or Town? I make a decision (e.g.Telepan) and then see negative posts (below) and second guess myself. So NYers, help me make up my mind and get this right so I can be comfortable with my decision (and stop obsessing). Please don't suggest another restaurant because you'll only confuse me more (and yes, I have checked out places on the UWS like Compass, which seems inferior to these two and Dovetail, which has no openings for 8:00). Thank you (yet again) for helping me get this right!
