Last minute Father's 64th bday, downtown, NYT 3-star level
For 8 people, for this sunday!
anywhere downtown, west village/tribeca/east village wherever.
I've already taken him to Blue Hill, Annisa, Indochine, Fleur de sel (RIP), Gotham Bar and Grill.
Not too stuffy preferably. I was eyeing Corton as one possibility, maybe Wallse? Somewhere with a great fish dishes is preferable, since he is on a diet. 1-mich star level, or 3 star NY times level, or whatever, just that vibe.
A Fellow Foodie
P.S. EMP is one of the restaurants on my list, if a reservation is possible. It is the only exception out the highest end restaurants. otherwise, the tier below like the restaurants mentioned above.
What about Aldea? 31 W. 17th Street.
The meal I had there last week is still in my dreams....
And there are a number of seafood offerings -- the baby cuttlefish app was sublime.
oops.. nevermind.. I just checked -- they're closed Sundays. Sorry.
But do put them on your list for another time.
Eleven Madison Park is closed on Sundays, BTW, as is Corton.
Going through Open Table if you are willing to eat early you could do:
Gotham Bar & Grill (again)
It's going to be pretty difficult to get a 3 star NYT restaurant on a Sunday for such a large party on such short notice, so I would set expectations accordingly.
Well, im not sure what to recommend based on this 1 Michelin star requirement. I doubt if Landmarc has a star, if they do then Michelin has lowered their criteria.
I would recommend the Acqua Grill for fish, possibly Lure. Or Bouley's new restaurant. Otherwise 15 East for some sushi. Another choice might be Chanterelle.
Hearth it'll be!
Thanks a lot everyone for the feedback. The input was helpful as always. Several years ago I went to Hearth regularly, so I'll be looking forward to the visit, perhaps write a brief report if up for it. The vibe/decor suits him best for this round. Thank you!
