Cooking for too many days in a row and need a meal out...

Subject says it all. I can't splurge on anything in the EMP range but I'd like to go out tomorrow night and have well-prepared dishes and good to very good service. I've been to some of these but not for a couple years. I'd love to hear recent reviews as well as any other recs you guys might have. I also LOVED my restaurant week meal at Mas Grillade and considering it for dinner.

ABC Kitchen
Casa Mono
River Park
Gramercy Tavern (at the bar)
Mas Grillade
La Vara (Brooklyn)

Thanks in advance for your help. I'm sure I'd be very happy at any of these but I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Of those on your list, I think Riverpark is a great choice. I've never been disappointed there.

    1. You'll be in for a long wait at ABC Kitchen and even then I find the walk-in tables too tall and uncomfortable (the chairs are also tall).

      Casa Mono you'll probably have a long wait as well.

      1. Gramercy Tavern at the bar. Great food and wonderful service.
