I went there for dinner a few nights ago and I placed my order with someone who appeared to be the manager. I specified I had a gluten allergy and asked him to check and see if I could do the pulled pork with potato fritters. He said that he was going to check with the kitchen. He went into the kitchen and never came back to check in with me. We saw him around the restaurant after that so I asked my waiter again about the meal. He came back and said I couldn't do the fritters and asked me for a replacement side dish. My food came out 5 minutes later and was fine but I wonder if they just would have served me the fritters and never have even told me.
Ending up (almost) on the East Coast, Philip Marie in NYC is probably the most romantic place on our list. The private Wine Room downstairs serves only one couple at a time, which affords the lucky guests an undeniably romantic experience. Just getting to the table is a journey worth remembering. Upon arrival you'll be taken through a series of underground tunnels that lead to a previous speak easy of the 1920's. The space was hidden for over 50 years and now offers one the most unique dining adventures in the city! To start off your meal, you'll enjoy a glass of champagne served with hors d'ouevres. Then your server will work individually with you, and your beloved, to design a customized five course meal. They will also pair each amazing dish perfectly with the appropriate wine. While there is no view of the city from the private dining room for two, Philip Marie will provide the perfect, romantic splurge for that very special occasion!
