I'm visiting my girlfriends next month for a weekend and volunteered to pick a place for dinner. Only requirement from my friends was lower east side below 23rd. I'm looking for something a little more upscale/dressy but with delicious food, especially dessert. Perhaps somewhere we could find a decent bottle of wine for under $50/bottle. Leaning towards new american, italian, or french....maybe tapas. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
