Manhattan Celebration Diner for 2 (and desert tasting questions)

jshaper | Aug 7, 2013 12:07 PM

My wife just found out she passed the post residency surgical boards exam on her first attempt which isn't easy. I found a last minute hotel room at the intercontinental barclay for this saturday night and wanted to now schedule a celebratory diner for us. We have loved Marseille and DB bistro Modern but I wanted to go up from there. I don't have an unlimited budget and we are going to the theater afterwards.

My wife and I keep kosher in the house but do dine out as long as we don't have anything that is not kosher. So we don't eat pork, shelfish, or meat and cheese. Because of this we can't do tasting menus but rather need to do 3 course menus / al a carte menus. Where we go would ideally have:

1. wine pairings with its menu (or a sommelier on site)
2. Lamb chops or duck (wife's favorite)
3. availability to get in on saturday and out in time for play.
4. price isn't a deciding factor but I would like to be under 400 w/ tax and tip (without wine pairings) so roughly 160 pp for diner (also willing to push slightly if really worth it).

Next we heard on previous trips about a dessert tasting at WD-50 is that something that is still going on and would you recommend it? Further is there any other dessert tasting menu you would recommend?

Thanks for all your help in advance.
