fancy shmancy dinner (not per se)?
hi we are looking for a very snooty and pretentious place to have a birthday dinner for my sister. last year we did the alain ducasse place at the st. regis. can someone recommend something? we wanted bouley but it is booked for a private party. we eat all types of cuisine (except maybe no sushi since we are bringing the parents). we are flexible with amount per person, but nothing as insane as per se.
I don't know that they're *actually* snooty and pretentious but boy, they do the showbiz part of an expensive dinner about as well as anyone. If you wanted to have a birthday party where the party-goers feel like gilded-age robber barons you can't do much better than Daniel. I think that would be fun.
I don't find any place to be "very snooty and pretentious" but that's just me.
