Lunch at Dovetail was lovely. Maybe not fabulous, but definitely lovely. I had a squash soup that wasn't too special but the duck confit entree was really well done and my dessert was excellent. It was a dense chocolate mousse, almost like a chocolate bar, and a fresh and wonderful green apple sorbet. Very nice lunch followed up with a walk across Central Park and a visit to the Frick Museum. How great is that?
Thanks for everyones and mclaurie's suggestions.

A couple of the other places we ate that deserve notice are Risotteria, which was a great place to fall into after a long day tripping around and Nizza, which had an absolutely perfect braised veal fettucine. Beautiful, silky pasta with just the right touch of sauce. I was in heaven. I had a nice nutella ice cream with espresso poured over, too. It's only a few blocks from the Longacre Theater.
And last, but not least, Vic's Bagels. I'm gluten free and they have a wonderful gluten-free everything bagel. I snarked down one of those a couple days in a row. Mmmm-mmmm! I ate more cream cheese in two days than I have in 3 years!

Glad you enjoyed Dovetail. I had the best halibut (of all things!) of my life here a few years ago.
It is not an inexpensive restaurant but given the quality I think the value is there.

We tried The Dutch the other day. Mrs. Monkey had the Restaurant week special and I had the fried chicken from the regular menu. The best dish was the celery root soup everything was good but nothing was exceptional. The pies are supposed to be spectacular so we had the apple and the banana cream pie. The store made ice cream that accompanied it was far superior and the service was impecable.
