Upper East Side Upscale Lunch

Dan S (formerly Dan Sonenberg) | Jan 18, 2004 05:47 PM

I'm being treated to a fancy birthday lunch tomorrow (b-day was 8 months ago, but never mind). I can go anywhere I want, provided they're open Monday and I can get a reservation with this late notice.

Here are the conditions:

Upper East Side is optimal (close locations considered)

Needs to have plenty of fish or vegetarian options

Prefer big, bold, even shocking flavors to super-subtle refinement (subtle/bold combinations are okay)

Prefer cozy/romantic to corporate/power ambiance

Any cuisine/ethnicity is fine.

Was thinking of trying for Daniel, but not sure a) if they're open for lunch, b) if there's any hope of getting a res. this late (res. department is closed right now) c) if it violates any or all of the above conditions.

Thanks for your help, hounds!

p.s. Please note handle change.
