  1. i would skip Lavo if you have any interest in a good meal. it might be lively, but i wouldn't pay to eat there. Gotham, on the other hand, has excellent dishes, but it is far from the liveliest place in Manhattan. haven't been to Mailano yet, but did enjoy a great meal at Hearth. i'd probably opt to do dinner at Minetta's bar and dessert maybe at Otto.

    have you looked at Empellon yet?

    1. If you can get a decent time slot, I would simply do dinner and dessert at Minetta Tavern. Souffle for two? Heaven.

      Locanda Verde for brunch.
