we have reservations to Momofuku Ko, where else can we eat instead?
by some fast clicking, I managed to score a dinner reservation to Momofuku Ko this coming week to celebrate an event for 3 friends. I had heard facebook friends chatting about it and so wanted to go for it, but after reading more about it in some reviews, people seem to be mixed on whether it's worth the money (now up to $125 for dinner!). If it's possible, I'm thinking I'd rather treat people to some place that's overwhelmingly great and worth the money (could be of similar price).
Can you suggest other places that I might try for at this late date (difficulty of reservations?)? I.e. of comparable impressiveness and quality for a special occasion? I thought of The Grocery in Brooklyn, or Gramercy Tavern?
Or can you make me feel better about continuing with the Momofuku Ko reservation?
