Can't get into Per Se - Any other suggestions for anniversary celebration

Going with my late 50's parents who like a little pizzazz in their dining experience. They have enjoyed Bouley and Daniel with us because of the great rooms. Any help greatly appreciated.

  1. Eleven Madison Park. All the buzz is around Daniel Humm right now and he's living up to it.

      Wholeheartedly second that EMP recommendation. Chef Humm's cuisine is sensational, and the room is beautiful.

    2. If you're up for a short trip to Westchester I suggest Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Sure to be an excellent meal in a beautiful setting...

      1. EMP is very good, but if you aimed at Per Se it would make more sense to fall back on Alain Ducasse - where it's much easier to get a table.

        1. What about Jean-Georges? I love the dining room, even more than Daniel. And I've had two recent dining experiences that have been really terrific.

          I also really enjoy EMP. The room is dramatic and feels very NY.

          1. Restaurant Daniel. (Keller couldn't carry Boulud's jock strap.)
