I am treating myself to a birthday dinner and am willing to spend some cash. Not Masa-level cash, but some. I love both traditional and experimental European and American food, and also really enjoyed my last birthday outing, which was to Nobu.
I don't get to the really high-end places terribly often (being an avid home cook and not that wealthy), so most are unknown to me. Here are some I was considering:
-Del Posto (or one of the other Batali properties, such as Babbo--I've still never been there!)
-One of the BLT properties (probably BLT Steak)
