Yeah - think the final decision is for Veritas. It's been very difficult trying to please my NYC chef palate along with trying to accomodate my 68 year old suburban NJ dad and his picky wife. I think Veritas will be a great happy medium where we'll all be pleased. Thanks again for the assistance.

He supposedly wanted to take me anywhere I wanted to go, but after checking out menus got scared off for being too "foodie". I've made a reservation at Veritas and Scarpetta. Still thinking about Maialino, too. Thank you so much for the suggestions and advice!

So, apparently, every place I chose (Babbo, Del Posto, Daniel, Le Bernadin, Locanda Verde) was too "foodie" for my dad. I've since suggested Maialino, Gramercy Tavern, Gotham Bar and Grill, Veritas, and Aureole. Not loving the choices, but think they're happy mediums between my choices and what appeals to dad and his picky wife. Help! Suggestions on these places, at least? None are ideal, but... think they might be the best places to fit both of our choices.

My father wants to take me to Babbo for my 35th birthday. They're "booked". Where do we go instead? Scarpetta? Locanda Verde? He's old school Italian suburban NJ guy. I'm progressive NYC pastry chef/ food lover. Where do we go to appeal to both of our tastes/senses?
