I have a friend coming in to town and I'm hoping to get a nice dinner with him. I tried to book Le Cirque, but they're closed as part of a planned 2-week shutdown in early December. Joel Robuchon and Guy Savoy are a bit out of our price range. I ate at e last month, so that's out.
I'm looking for a memorable multi-course menu in the $100-$200 per person range without drinks. I'm currently booked at L'atelier de Joel Robuchon, but am also considering Twist and Michael Mina.
My only restriction is that it not be a steakhouse.
