30th Bday Dinner for serious foodies...Daniel's Bistro, Bistro 44, Belford Bistro or Nicholas?

Hi All
had mentioned something about this on the Daniel's Bistro thread but decided to start a new one...need to make reservations for a 30th bday dinner...4 people on a Sat night in late Feb. These people are serious foodies. Have been to Nicholas and Belford Bistro before...wanting to try something new...was thinking either Daniel's or Bistro 44 but don't want to be dissapointed with either food or service for this special dinner...also I can not find a recent menu for either of the latter 2 restaurants...Im looking for overall the best experience from starters to dessert. Thanks!

  1. stack - Of the two you've never been, I would choose Bistro 44.

            I would go there blind....this is how GREAT the food is!!! Have fun, it is definately a great place, and I also love how they know to space everything as well!

                excellent! reservation made! Thanks everyone. Very excited...will report back

    2. I've been curious about Bistro 44 since I saw Chef Eric on Chopped. However, I tend to gravitate towards seafood for my entree and the online menu, albeit old, doesn't list any seafood main courses for dinner. Does anyone know if this is truly the case? Thanks!

          There is much love for BAT but it wasn't one of the three choices offered by the OP.

          1. re: bgut1

            I too absolutely love BAT but one of our fellow diners really dislikes the ambiance...he cant get past the fact that the bathrooms are practically in the middle of the dining room...I however can easily get past that fact every time i have the duck!

          I recall having enjoyed seafood entrees at B44. I would call the restaurant and confirm that they are on the menu or available as specials.
