Long-time lurker... love this site.
Am coming up to NYC for a long weekend later this month and have dinner reservations at both Union Square Cafe and the Brasserie. My SO wanted to try the former; I remember visiting the latter as a child (mom and dad took us into "the City" monthly for a Sunday walk and dinner)and am curious about it now.
Any suggestions about what each place does well? Anyone been there recently?
Thanks in advance from Arlington, VA
