Which has the best food of the three for dinner - Dante's/Iris/Boucherie

I can likely hit two of the three...can you guys help me decide? Also, if you want to throw out potentially one or two more for me to consider (in same price range for dinner) I'd be open to that as well.

    Best food is Iris, by a fair margin. It's more expensive that the other two though. I like all three of those; don't think you can go far wrong.

      I have never been to Iris but I love love love Boucherie's boudin balls and frites. I'll be there next week :-)

        Iris is basically fine dining, the food is unpretentious though. The other tow are great, but they aren't trying to be what Iris is.

          Consider Coquette or Clancy's. Both are outstanding.

            looked into coquette...menu seemed a bit tiny and restrictive...clancys sounds great however.

              Try Lilette. Do not miss the parm. toast w / marrow. Coquette's menu changes at least weekly. Although there have been times the menu didn't appeal to me, they have never disappointed.

            Iris is very good, but the sauces on many of their dishes are the same. I personally suggest Bistro Daisy or Upperline as potential other choices. Hubby and I revisited both within the last month and were very pleased.

              Iris by a wide margin. I found no such redundancy amongst the sauces.
