My husband and I are going to NYC in July (just before Restaurant Week wouldn't you know?). Staying in Midtown and want to stay on the island.
We want to go to some great places for dinner, preferably with good prix fixe menus to keep the budget more reasonable.
What I've found so far is: Artisinal, 21 Club, and Le Cirque, and Russian Tea Room (I know it might be past its prime but I've always wanted to eat there)
What would you choose from these? Or do you know of others?
We love French and Italian in particular and used to live in Chicago, so we "get" big-city fine dining.
Many thanks in advance,
