Nicest Kosher Restaurant

I have occasion for a celebratory dinner, and am looking for the nicest Kosher restaurant in Manhattan - price is no object. Would also consider Northern New Jersey, Bronx, Westchester.

On a recent similar occasion, I tried Solo, and was disappointed in both the food and the atmosphere.

  1. My favorite is the Prime Grill - the food is excellent and I think the service is very good - I have not had a bad expereince - nect to that I like Abigaels as well -

      It's been years since I went to Prime Grill, but I recall reading some very mixed reviews here. Any more opinions about how it is these days?

      Abigael's is probably my favorite restaurant overall, but I'm looking for something "special", and I don't consider it in that category.

        I'll add in a vote for The Prime Grill. It's one of the few places that I must go to each time I make it back to NYC.

          Second that- steak on a par with the best around (almost)

      2. The last time I was in a really celebratory mood I took myself to Mike's Bistro and had the multi-course chef's menu, with matching wines. One of the wines was so good that I asked the waiter for its name, which is how I now buy Gabriele Pinot Grigio. Unfortunately I haven't been back to Mike's, since I rarely have occasion to be in that part of the city, and I haven't felt in expansive enough a mood to go just to eat there.

            I think Solo is great, but there's something odd about going to the Sony Atrium for a fancy dinner. Prime Grill is still my favorite.

              In my opinion, Solo is the best one out there...but I have also done the tasting menu at Mike's and it made it a real special time. The food was incredible and the ambience is a little better than the Sony Atrium.

        1. Le Carne Grill is one of my favorites. I definitely prefer the atmosphere to the one at Prime Grill and I think the food and service is great.

          1. Mike's Bistro.. hands down the best in NYC!!

            1. Mike's for the food, Prime Grill for the business cachet, Solo for the "Donald Trump rents this place out on occasion" cachet. Mike's is somewhat more laid back in terms of dress (suits wouldn't be out of place but also aren't necessary).
