brand new to the board. planning an anniversary trip with my girlfriend...we come to nyc fairly frequently - usually just to dine and shop! anyway, i was just wondering if anyone could provide recs for some romantic places within a close proximity (or a short cab ride) to a champagne bar? we like extremely creative food, are not scared by much - either in content or portion size. just something 'cool' and different and maybe not on any top 10 list. price is not really a concern.
also, any recs for a good champagne bar would be appreciated....
so excited to plan this so thanks in advance!
(oh and i should mention that we're staying near 57th and 11th or so...i forget. we usually travel out of the area for dinner though so no major geographic limits...will travel for good food...)
