thanks everyone for the heads up on Rosewater.
I've narrowed it down to:
Can I get your votes please!
Went to Scaramouch for my birthday the other day. It was a really, really good meal. Traditionaly fancy - more than most places I've been to in the city. I had the best lamb in recent memory that night. Perfectly pink with such a great crust (that actually added something) and yummy sauces. MMMM.... My smoked arctic char appetizer, and banana caramel tart were amazing too. Oh - and everything my husband had (tuna 3 ways & roast quail, duck confit and seared foe gras) was taaaasty. The view is pretty good too!
I would definitely second Scaramouche. Perfect for such an occasion. Food and service are consistently great - not snobby.
Menu is more traditional than trendy. Ambiance is elegant and understated.
Scaramouche...call ahead mention the occasion and ask for a table with a view of the City...it's amazing...wonderful food...valet parking...romantic and charming..Miranda
