No luck for reservations at Bondir- second place suggestions?
I'd wanted to take the new beau to Bondir for his birthday dinner next Friday, but they were already booked full (will keep in mind that a week is not enough for Bondir reservations on Friday for future endeavors). And now that my awesome plans have been foiled I can't seem to come up with any other ideas.
Any good suggestions for a replacement option? Looking for something a little romantic. Somewhat spendy is okay (L'espalier is probably out). But not spendy is okay too (although I'd really like a lovely atmosphere if possible). We are adventurous eaters. Local/sustainable given high marks.
We did Coppa last Friday otherwise I'd just do that! (We've also done all of JP, so no Ten Tables or Tres Gatos suggestions, but we love those places too).
EDIT: And my second choice, Oleana, is also booked up. Third place goes to....
