As the title suggests we're in New York for her 30th. We're Londoners and have enjoyed lots of excellent restaurants in London - Gordon (Chef) Ramsey at Claridges, Locanda Locatellis, Le Gavroche, etc. Would you be able to reccomend a good restaurant for dinner on the Saturday of our stay (10 April). We have been reccomended Gramercy Tavern but the comments on here suggest that maybe in isn't worth the $86 prix fixe and could be a disappointment. I need to book in the next few days to avoid disappointment. Ideally the cuisine should be comtemporary american and the check can be upto $250 for 2 courses, wine and service.
On a cheesier note; we've been enjoying the TV seies Mad Men recently; could anyone recommend an old school cocktail lounge? Or a traditional Speakeasy?
