I have used this board extensively for a gastronomic trip through Spain and was steered in wonderful directions. Now, I am heading to NY with my two "kids" ages 24 and 21. We are going to do a lot of ethnic restaurants, but would love to do one special tasting menu. 24 year old is a food writer in Spain and loves tasting menus. The places that we did tasting menus in Spain were awesome, 3+ hour meals that were very memorable.
If you could only do one (because of budget) which would you choose? Budget is around $150/pp without tax/tip/drinks. Probably would do wine pairings so would be willing to add another $50-80pp. No suit and tie required, but a fantastic "special" experience is requested. We love to be treated very well - no snobbery involved.
