Fine Dining Restaurant Near 61st and 1st

Not Joel Roublechon--
So far my ideas are Jean George (which I know is kind of far), Daniel and davidburke and donatella. Any other advice?

  1. How about Aureole?

    I love davidburke and donatella and have had outstanding meals and service every time i've been. If you're a small party, i'd try to request one of the booths so you aren't in the center of the dining room. It definitely makes for a more enjoyable dining experience.

    1. You should try my all time favorite restaurant: Aureole where you'll find delicious food, attentive service and lovely atmosphere. Aureole is located at 61 St. between Park and Madison.

      1. Maya, upscale mexican at 64 and 1st...not necessarily "fine," but the best gourmet mexican food in the city. make sure to try their corn soup.

          1. re: nyrocks

            Chef Wayne Nish closed March on Jan. 1st and is re-tooling it into a less formal place. Should re-open at the end of January. I've never been, but from what I've read, most people feel the quality of the food had been in steep decline for quite some time.
