I got a gift certificate to this and I haven't been to any of the places on it except Blue Smoke and, of course, Shake Shack. The restaurants include Union Square Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, Eleven Madison Park, The Modern, and I suppose Maialino if it is especially good - although I'm really choosing between the first four. I'm sure everyone knows all of those places, and I was just wondering which is the best. Thanks.
Oh, and it would be a date with my girlfriend - both in our mid 20's, but the key is the food being the best.
