I was last in NYC with my sisters in 07 (& ty chowhounders for your direction back then) and it was quite a different trip to the one planned with my husband of 10 yrs this year for May. I would like it to be a very special 3 days . Hes very into his food and the last amazing & romantic meal we had in London was Clos Maggiore. Id love to find something of that ilk in NY.
Ive been to Keanes and liked its atmosphere very much , and we may visit there together this time , as hes very into his Steaks. Ive also been to Pastis, which was nice but not out of this world. (Although our table was not far from Matthew Perrys that night so we had a few hot under collar girls with us!).
He had wanted to do Per Se , but Im feeling that the price per head may be a touch too much this time. Although I know many rave about it.
As you can imagine its so hard to come up with a definitive short list as there so much good food not all of it Michelin star level !
So to this end I would really appreciate some direction.
This is my list so far :
Are any of the restaurants in say 60Thompson or The Library any good?
Is there anywere else that is a must that I haven't included? May be something a little lower down the price range, but still gourmet, fresh, well thought out $70- $120 pp inc a glass?
