Special dinner with college-age stepson tonight

DiscreetTaste Apr 27, 2007 01:58 PM

I am taking my stepson, who is a sophmore at NYU to dinner tonight. I do not have reservations yet. I want to take him somewhere in the village that is special but fun for both of us. Need suggestions.

    What about Blue Hill? It's last minute, but for reasons I can't fathom I don't have a problem getting same day reservations. A little north from there, what about the Tavern Room at Gramercy Tavern.

    If he's a sushi person, what about Kanoyama? (A place I have yet to try but is high on my list.)

      My 20 year old daughter likes Da Silvano, It's on 6th Avenue one block north of Houston.


      I want to add that students can not afford this place so it's nice to take them there.

        Go to Maremma, great choice for an NYU student

          Awful choice. I like my stepson.

          Otto, although you should be prepared to wait.
