30th Birthday Dinner - George, Trevor or Perigee?

gomoxie | Mar 18, 2007 10:17 AM

Hi there,
It's my husband's 30th birthday at the end of May and we are both really into tasting menus. I have done a lot of reading on past posts and am trying to determine whether to go to George, Perigee or Trevor.

1) I am hoping that we can do tasting menu with wine flight for around $300.
2) It's important that the chef is open to preferences as neither of us will do organ meat, and I won't eat octopus/eel or pork
3) Good service is a must!
4) I'd like somewhere that has nice ambience and feels special
5) Ideally, the chef is willing to do slightly different tasting menus for each of us so we get to try more things

I really like what I have read about Perigee's tasting menus but it sounds like the price-range may be a bit high and the ambience is nothing crazy (though the open kitchen concept sounds pretty cool). Trevor's price range looks better and I've heard great things about the food but I've heard that the dining area also feels like nothing special and it sounds like the service is somewhat hit or miss. George looks like it has the ambience and service but I'm not so sure about tasting menu prices and how good the tasting menu is (as it sounds like most items are just pulled from the menu).

Any advice or alternate suggestions would be so appreciated!
