In-laws in town, need great atmosphere + food?

Looking for a good place to take the in-laws with great atmosphere, mid-expensive range. My husband and I just moved up here but so far have loved August, Blue Hill, and Hearth; just want to try something new (though similar feel) with them.

  1. I cannot address the ones you named but I am thinking about your in-laws and I believe they would like Compass, Vice Versa, Telepan, Le Bernardin.

    1. Eleven Madison or Gramercy Tavern? I had brunch at Eleven Madison where my parents met my future MIL for the first time and I couldn't have asked for a better place.

      My future hubby and I also took my parents to Gramercy Tavern when they visited NYC for the first time and they loved it. We sat in the tavern area and they were fine with it, but if you want something more intimate I would suggest the back rooms. Both places seemed to provide professional, unobtrusive service with excellent food and the perfect atmosphere for everyone to talk and get to know each other.

      1. Maybe A Voce or Insieme (same owners as Hearth)
