When can we take our guest who only has shorts and sandals?

I need a rec for a nice restaurant where we can bring our out-of-town visitor. He brought no pants, only shorts and rubber sandals. Someplace with good food where we can make reservations. Not a dive.

  1. Does it have to be a place you can make reservations? I was going to suggest Pearl.

      It's a slightly large party and I hate waiting in line, so being able to make reservations would be ideal.

    2. What kind of food? Part of town?

        Pretty much any kind of food except Asian. Prefer downtown up to about Murray Hill.

          Markt, Borough Food and Drink, Crispo

      2. How about Blue Smoke for BBQ? It's pretty casual and the food is good.

        I love Crispo but not entirely sure that shorts would work there. Maybe Otto instead?
