Default Good Restaurant in New York City? (Cross post to a couple of forums...)

I'm traveling to New York in November to visit a friend and take in the city and was wondering what a fairly nice restaurant to take my lady friend to would be, price doesn't matter really, something near Park Avenue and Grand Central would be convenient as its near my hotel.

I've heard that 21 is a fairly nice one, but they don't take reservations for more than one month in advance.

Oh, and some nice place for Sunday Brunch or something would be awesome as well, but the hotel might have to suffice.

Any suggestions would be great, any type of food is fine by the way, we aren't very picky =P

Btw, I have no idea what the difference between Tri State and NE is, so please pardon my ignorance and with all of the cross posts, I just want to find a swanky place to dine at)

there's a lot of nice restaurants, it depends on what kind of "lady friend" this is though, someone you want to romance or what, be a bit more specific.

that place is kinda cheese in my opinion, want a real nice place to go to, check out a place called "candela" on 116 east 16th, or try benihana on west 56th, theres a lot of nice places to go, it all depends on what kind of atmosphere you'd like to be in.

Lady friend as in friend for 13 years that is a really good friend, some place rather swanky, upscale, also some place that I can't find in Dallas (Like Benihana's, Palm, Wendy's, etc).

Yeah, I know, impossible criteria, but any suggestions that I can toss at her are great.

Thanks,
Phil

Hmm for a Bar, you can go to the Tar Bar on 74th and 1st.
Scarlatto's Cafe in Pier 17
Union Square Cafe is decent.
Tavern on the Green is cool.
Ossa Bouka (sp) is a great family style Italian on 12th + 5th ave IIRC.

I'd stay away from chain type places, since there are so many non-chain places in NYC.

If you are into Japanese fusion type food, Nobu's in downtown tribeca is pretty good.

Without a doubt, the place you are looking for is:

Daniel - 60 E. 65th St. , between Madison and Park Aves., New York, NY, USA - Phone: 212/288-0033

http://www.danielnyc.com/daniel.html

I guarantee you that you will not find better food or treatment anywhere in New York. This is the "creme de le creme" of NYC restaurants. You will be pampered beyond belief in one of the most elegant, upscale and exclusive restaurants in the entire city.
If you prefer a specific type of food, let me know, as I've been to just about every upscale place in the the city.

Wow, you all are about the 20th people to suggest Tavern on the Green, I think I'll go ahead and go there for one of the 2 nights.

And actually French cuisine is about the last thing on our lists of taste, although their rack of lamb sounds absolutely wonderful, last time we went to a French place here in Dallas we paid the tab and went down to Fuddrucker's to get some decent stuff. Then again that restaurant (not Fuddrucker's) is now closed so maybe it was just that they sucked

Really I think that we're more of the not-so-bright "romantic" type place (though, we're not romantically inclined, don't ask, that there is a helluva story) with a sort of New American cuisine, but we're both into trying weird things, so if that makes any sense whatsoever (Hell, I'm confused as to what I want) suggestions would be great. Tavern on the Green though is going to happen I think.

And actually, a good sushi place might work too.

If you're into New American, I'd suggest Union Pacific, Gramercy Tavern, and Union Square Cafe. I think theWater Club has a good brunch. Not sure if you've already done this, but check out the Zagat Survey ( www.zagats.com ) for some suggestions along with locations and general pricing. Keep in mind that you're gonna have to make a reservation several weeks in advance for some of the more popular restaurants.

Good luck and enjoy you visit to NYC!

For New American food, go to either Judson Grill or Park Avenue Cafe. As mentioned by other people, Union Square Cafe is also very good. Enjoy your visit.

Actually I had no idea about the Zagat's Survey deal, that could be handy, but one question...what is the neighborhood around Grand Central and Park called?


And RS22b, do you mean West Side Sushi?
