Thoughts on Daniel?

lizard acres | Apr 17, 2004 09:29 PM

Hi - I am trying to decide on a place for our 25th anniversary. Some folks have answered my question and I have searched the board posts for the past few months. My list now has:

Daniel, La Bernardin, and Veritas (RGR keeps raving about it!)

I could not find a lot of opinion or recent visits to Daniel. One opinion was that it was not as creative as Jean Georges. Looking at Daniel's spring menu, it sounds darn creative to me (but I'm no expert.)

Also, is La Bernardin strictly seafood? My husband tends to order meat at upscale/high-end restaurants. If La Bernardin does serve meat, how is their skill with meat?

I am still interested in other opinions on where to go. Where would you go to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event and major life achievement? I'm thinking romantic, delicious, fine service, champagne...the whole enchilada! TIA - I appreciate Chowhound patience with this kind of post.
