We want a great restaurant, can get into Babbo, any suggestions?
I've given up on Babbo due to the difficult reservation process. Any suggestions? We are being taken out for our 5th anniversary so we want somewhere special that we have never been to. We've been to and like Union Square Cafe, Gotham, Gramercy Tavern, Ill Mulino, Peter Luger. Thanks for your input.
If you haven't been to Eleven Madison Park since Chef Humm took over the kitchen last year, then it would definitely be my first choice.
If you want to stick with Italian, I highly recommend L'Impero.
Btw, you might want to correct your subject line to read "...cannot get into Babbo...."
I've always enjoyed Lever House's food and if you're at all an architectural crowd, the Marc Newsome interior in the SOM knock off of Mies is pretty nice.
