Hi. I am looking for something fairly swanky, but perhaps not Per Se swanky. The big catch is that I am not really into seafood and that rules out a lot of the new contenders. For what it's worth, our favorite upscale places, in addition to Per Se, are Atera and Corton. We were underwhelmed by The Modern and Lincoln, and the husband has no interest in the new EMP. I just called Jungsik and they can keep the seafood out of my meal. Is that a good choice? Where oh where should we go?

Thank you!

    Jung Sik is excellent. If they said they can make your dishes without seafood I think that would be an great choice. Am I right to assume you only want to do tasting menus?

      Thank you. No, it doesn't have to be a tasting menu.

      Have you considered Bouley? It's one of my favorite restaurants. I also like Atera and Corton, and was also underwhelmed by The Modern. You can order a la carte or have the multi-course tasting menu with three choices per course for $175 at Bouley.
