Thanks in advance for the advice! My sister and I are taking my mother to Manhattan for a girl's weekend. It's her first trip and we want to have big dining experience. We're looking for something where we can be comfortable without being stuffy. After perusing the boards, I've looked at Lupa or it looks great. I was also interested in some of Jean-George's places but wasn't sure if they would be what I was looking for. I was thinking approx. $100-$150 for food and wine. Its for Saturday, June 13th so I haven't been able to make any reservations yet. We don't really do exotic foods- but any advice would be greatly appeciated.
