Locanda Verde, Peasant, Dressler, The Grocery
I'll go with Locanda Verde for having the more celebratory ambiance than Peasant.
I don't know Dressler and if I can presume that you meant The Grocery in Brooklyn, then you may not get enough responses here about it since this is the Manhattan Board. If you want a similar American-type menu, then you should consider The Dutch (by the same team at Locanda Verde). I really liked our dinner there last Friday, plus the service was close to excellent.
