Balthazar I'm skeptical of people trying to show up small-towners with big-city extravagence. In all likelihood they probably don't care about whatever spectacle you've got planned for them. Give them a good atmosphere.

Great food, always packed (does that define 'trendy'?).

yea i see your point. Balthazar is probably my favorite place in the city, it's just so fucking classic. the menu is kind of tough for my guests, but you're making me reconsider. actually Tao and Balthazar were the first two places i went to in New York in my youth, and clearly they both made a good impression. (i had good hosts and want to return the favor in some way...)

thx for all the ideas guys, i will have a lot to meditate on. all the stuff i'm missing living out in the burbs ...

I like it and I think that it serves finely prepared food that people not used to michelin style dining would find accessible. I think it's the type of place that acts as a great gateway to better food. Far from the only place like this... would also recommend Barbuto.
