What do you guys think of Wallse?
Let's say you have to entertain a foodie (chowhound, indeed) couple, you want nice / classy atmosphere, and you want to stay below midtown, where would you go?
Food over atmosphere, if you have to choose. And price is no object.
Is Wallse a good choice? What other choices do I have?
Have not been to Wallse. Just tried Danube (it's atmosphere/service over food).
Allen & Delancey just opened. I have not received any responses to my inquiry on this board re: food, etc. I hope to go soon.
Degustation (the open kitchen/bar seating is best for one or two so if you are entertaining this might not be a good choice). There are several threads. We really enjoyed our meals.
Blue Hill? I have not been. Bouley (I have not been in ages).
Wallse is nice, but if price is not a problem, I think you can do much better. If you want something in the village, I would choose Annisa or Cru. The food at Annisa is interesting and the atmosphere is cozier, Cru is more formal but I find Cru more exciting because they give you more canapes and amuses and between course tastes that make the meal more special. Great wine list too.
