I'm in town for one dinner, with a friend, next week--I am feeling eclectic in my choices, but they all look good. Jungsik might be a little too stuffy (the dining room looks like that, but maybe I am wrong), Back Forty West maybe a little too lowdown. Which would you pick and why?
Back Forty West
i'll make it harder by adding more choices:
-- 15 East
-- Osteria Morini
-- St Anselm
Of your picks, i would try either Kyo ya or Jungsik. ( Jung Sik isn't really stuffy, just ignore the stuffy people that might be there.
Of Simon;s more difficult picks I would choose 15 East and Osteria Morini.
Or maybe try picking from this list:
OK, thanks all. I am booked at Jungsik, which had wide-open availability, to my surprise. I might still give NoMad a call just to see if they have anything, but OpenTable is saying that they have nothing within 2.5 hours of my requested time (and I am not a person that can sit down to dinner at 10 PM!)
