I must confess, I have never actually used a Chowhound's recommendation, certainly not with such a huge risk. But this morning two friends of mine from out of town got married at city hall (long story), and I really wanted to take them somewhere special afterwards. There were only two problems: First, I don't know Tribeca restaurants at all, and second -- they're both pretty picky eaters... After searching the board, I decided to go to City Hall on Duane, and we ended up having a great lunch! The food was decent (esp. the Manhattan chowder), and the great decor and service made up for the rest. The newlyweds were very impressed, and I was enormously relieved... Thank you so much!!

      I agree, but still -- this "one meal" would become a part of their wedding-day memories! That's what I meant by "risk". If it was just another lunch with friends, I wouldn't think twice before trying something new.
