We're visiting New York for our 9th anniversary, it's been a rough year so I'd like something special, we're coming from San Francisco, so we know good food & we know it usually comes at a price, unfortunately money IS an issue, would like to keep it under $300.00 after drinks & tip.
So far we got:
Babbo or Lupa
Love Mario & Lydia, is it possible to get out of Babbo on our budget? I realize Lupa is not as expensive but is it worth saving a few extra dollars for?
Minetta Tavern or Gramercy Tavern
We chose these because they just seem classic New York, figure we could get Black Label Burgers & a nice bottle of wine..
Open to knew ideas, any comments are appreciated,
