No luck with EMP, where to go instead?
I would like to book a memorable restaurant for a family last night together for a while.
There are 5 of us (awkward number for reservations)
I don't like French and we'll probably have Italian for lunch
Should be Mid-Town (but not necessary)
Should be cutting edge modern and imaginative but not molecular
Saturday night Dec 8 (less than a month away)
I really enjoy fresh, crisp and delicious and dislike harty, long-cooked, meat and two veg
Not too exotic (my brother is just the opposite of me)
Plus side: there is no limit to the budget. This is a one-off and should be worth it.
Thanks very much for any assistance and tips you might give me!
How about the DIning Room at The Modern? There is a 6:00 available. Beautiful setting especially around the Holidays. Great food.
If you're willing to switch the italian for lunch then I'd suggest Marea, I think it's the best italian in town if you like fish..
Then The Modern, Le Bernardin, Per Se, etc etc.. The usual big players..
I have a really sweet spot for Tocqueville, every dinner I had there was nothing short of amazing.
I was at Marea and Blue Hill a few weeks ago and both were outstanding. Le Bernadine was too, as usual, but that is French. Dining Room at The Modern was excellent at lunch a while back.
