We come to NYC once a quarter to enjoy theater and food. Have reservations next weekend for Tocqueville Sat and Maialino Sun nites. Got a call last Tues informing us that Tocqueville DR closed for private party and our reservation would be honored in lounge with same menu etc. A bit ticked that we were called so late as it's too late to substitute the likes of Gramercy, Union nevermind Modern, Bouley, EMP etc. Suspect "book out" of the entire dining room didn't happen suddenly. so please tell me nice things about the lounge ...I don't see cancel and rebooking as an option at this late date. This is our first visit to Tocqueville and I booked it despite husbands protest and preference to go to Bouley or Modern or EMP again. please advise re lounge ambiance. Thanks.
