tasting menu help! what haven't i thought of?

miss_anthrope | Mar 12, 2014 09:26 AM

My partner’s birthday is mid-April and I am going to take him out. I’m having a major block in where to take him this year and turning to you all for help.

Criteria: He wants a tasting menu (doesn't want to make decisions ) and a bonus if there is a beverage pairing. Also, he wants to go somewhere new where he hasn't been before. It can be fancy (& expensive) or casual, but it’s a special birthday, so something a little not-every week. However, the best food/experience is most important

This is the list of where we've been in the last few years
Ko (last year’s birthday)
Per se
Le Bernardin
*there are many others – but these come to mind or have been suggested by other

Outer borough (just as an FYI)
Chef’s Table / Brooklyn Fare
The Dover

For whatever reasons he’s not interested in The Nomad, Daniel, Bouley, Masa, Atera,

Some inital thoughts are: Sushi Nakazawa or Annisa (which, I know nothing about) or Jungsik. However, I’m not really sold or super excited about any of these. Could you either convince me that one of the above is great or help me overcome this block and think of additional options. Thanks!
