I am planning a birthday dinner for someone who is turning 50 and she loves French food (a big francophile). This would be for 4 people. She isn't from NY, so she hasn't been to most of the restaurants in Manhattan. I was thinking Balthazar, but who is doing French really well right now? I want something with a good atmosphere that is lively- was thinking Cafe Boulud perhaps. Price is really no object.
