The restaurant is very beautiful with 2 levels and a beautiful long bar.
They have a weonderful burger on the menu and I just cannot think of the name of this restaurant.
I am from NY and do not remember the exact location.

Thank you in advance

  1. Zuni

    Or maybe Bix.

      Probably Bix, as the bar at Zuni is neither beautiful nor long :-)

      For the OP, Bix is located in an alley (Gold Street) in the Jackson Square area of the city and the staff dresses very well, almost formally. Does this ring a bell?

        Zuni is better known for its burgers though. I prefer Bix personally.

        1. re: Windy

          I'm guessing Bix as well and their burger ROCKS!

            Good to know. I've never made it past their steak tartare, with a martini or two.

              Windy - their Sidecar is legendary...

              1. re: CarrieWas218

                Sold! I love a good sidecar.

    2. The description of the bar and the levels brings Bix to mind for me too.

      1. NOPA has a long bar, 2 levels, and a nice burger, though might be more "hip" than "beautiful"

          I would have said Nopa as well. Long bar and great burger.

        2. Was it one of the ones recommended on your last trip? If you had reported back we would have had a record of it. Zuni was suggested in 2007, Neither Bix nor Nopa.

          1. Nopa is my guess.

              How long ago was the OP here? Nopa has not been open nearly as long as Zuni or Bix.

              1. re: DavidT

                I believe Nopa was opened before the Raisel 2007 post.

            2. My guess would be Zuni, but all three restaurants suggested fit the bill.

              1. The main question is whether it was bright with lots of windows, or very dark and where you'd go to have an affair.

                If the latter, probably Bix. If the former, most likely Zuni, but possibly NOPA.

                Further, if you could answer whether the bar was copper, we'd have your answer: Zuni.

                1. So, Raisel, did anyone know the restaurant you were thinking of??
