Picholine - Jacket & Tie?

2slices Dec 17, 2008 06:09 AM

My usual attire for a classy restaurant is jacket and tie but with jeans and nice shoes. I'm 30 and haven't gone uptown in 10 years except for work or visiting family.

Do I need to get out an iron and find something with pleats. Normally the only time I don't wear jeans is with a suit.


Edit: the wild game tasting menu looks amazing

    It's a lovely place and you'll feel better if you're in your once-a-year suit. Very romantic. Bring a friend. Save room for the cheese course, Lots of room.

      I agree with the others that jeans are not appropriate for Picholine. When we had dinner there in May, I did see a young man in a long-sleeved shirt, but he was the only gentleman not wearing a jacket. If you have a suit, that would work.

        I would definitely have worn a jacket and tie. Was just wondering if nice jeans would pass. Anyway I've got a new suit that is gonna sit around til the next wedding, I can break that out.

        thx all

        Get out an iron and dress up a bit, it won't hurt you to look nice. And pass on the jeans.
        This is a really beautiful place.

          I went to Picholine's lounge/bar area for a quick dinner the past Friday.

          I've observed diners leaving from the dining room all dressed in suits and ties for the men and ladies in the a dress or formal attire.
