fine dining EXPERIENCE for son's 13th birthday

cgh | Sep 12, 2013 02:09 PM

Coming to NYC from PA to celebrate my 50th and my son's 13th birthday. Son is a foodie and all three of us enjoy TV shows like Master Chef. I'd like to have a weekend fine dining experience, emphasis on the experience, for less than $100 per person, to show my son what fine dining is all about. (my husband and son do not drink alcohol, so that is not a factor in the bill other than my 1 or 2 drinks/glasses of wine). Pluses would include a view of the kitchen or availability of kitchen tours, excellent service, extras like amuse bouche or petit fours after the meal. Could do Saturday lunch or dinner, or Sunday dinner if we had to (trip is from Sat a.m. to Sun p.m.) Any and all advice is very welcome. My back up plan is dinner at Nougatine with requests for a view of the kitchen for my son and perhaps a dessert from Jean George served in the Nougatine dining room (if they will do it). Many thanks!
