Birthday Dinner Decision?

eb385 | Jul 7, 2010 01:55 PM

I am trying to decide where I want to go for my birthday this September and have narrowed it down to two places:

Le Bernardin
or
Eleven Madison Park

Two years ago I went to Le Bernardin and had the most amazing meal of my life! Unfortunately my husband missed out, so I'm thinking my birthday might be a great opportunity for him to try this delicious restaurant for the first time.

I went to Eleven Madison Park ages ago right when it opened and sadly haven't been back. It looks wonderful and I have been wanting to try out the new menus.

If you had to choose a tasting menu with either wine pairings or a bottle of wine with dinner which one would you recommend based on value, taste, and birthday celebration factor?

or would you go somewhere entirely different?

thoughts?
