Good restaurants NOT doing a set menu on Valentine's Day - follow-up from my previous "Brunch and lunch places for NYC foodie"

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your suggestions on my previous thread regarding brunch and lunch places. See link:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/679759

I was able to get a reservation at Komi but am on the waitlist at Minibar. However, I was instead able to get a table in the Chef's Tasting Room at Restaurant Eve so I'm excited about that.

I think we've settled on breakfast at Teaism for Saturday, and brunch at Blue Duck Tavern on Sunday.

I was hoping to have dinner at Rasika on Sunday but it is Valentine's Day and they are only doing a set menu and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Has anyone dined at Rasika on a holiday featuring a set menu, and if so, what did you think?

Alternately, what would be some great restaurants, more casual than Komi and Eve (we'll be ready for a change of pace), that would probably be featuring their regular menu on Valentine's Day?

It's a tall order I know but I'd appreciate any suggestions you have. Proof? Source? Anything?

Thanks so much!

    I don't think you can go wrong with Rasika no matter the menu

      Does that mean Blue Duck got over their policy of charging everyone a flat $25 fee for Sunday, or is that for dinner only?
