Dinner on Upper East Side
Don't want to go to Daniel, I keep reading awful things about David Burke Townhouse -- any suggestions for an out-of-towner?
If you're up for a really nice UES Mahattan experience and willing to to spend the $$$
Park Avenue Summer will be great. The food is to die for the , decor is unmatched and the people watching is the best. Just wear your Chanel and look good. Check out their website!
The Upper East Side covers a large geographic and gastronomic swath. Any idea roughly where you want to be and the sort of food and price range you are interested in?...BTW: Park Avenue Summer starts May 26 -- it's a lovely place, great food, and I have not found it overly formal or stuffy -- comfortable and friendly.
Although I do like some of the food, Cafe d'Alsace is very loud, quite casual, and the service is almost always amateurish and clumsy.
Consider Le Bistro D'à Côté or La Mangeoire

Sfoglia on Lex near 91st is delicious. Not as fancy as Daniel. But the food is really marvelous.
