Planning a birthday dinner. Which restaurant would you pick? Marea or A Voce-Time Warner? Opinions, suggestions? Your feedback would be most appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

    Marea, by a landslide. Note even close.

      A voce is seriously average. About 3 or 4 levels below Marea in every aspect. I really don't get the hype they generated from the likes of NY Mag. They must have one helluva PR team behind them. Shame it ain't matched in the kitchen.

        Marea for sure. Chef Michal White's menu is flawless, the restaurant experience is super comfortable, and it deserves its hype as one of the best restaurants in NYC. I strongly recommend the tasting menu.
