Here's the deal...
We're surprising my dad by bringing him to NYC for the weekend. The family's flying in from everywhere...but no one's in NYC, so we need help! We're looking for upscale, fancy-esque places to treat Dad to amazing culinary experiences, but we don't want to go somewhere for the atmosphere and not have a good eating experience (i.e., Tavern on the Green). I realize there are gazillions of great restaurants in NYC, but we only have five meals to plan!
I also realize this is the BEST place to come to get people's thoughts, so tell me this - if you were to die tomorrow, where would you have your last meal in Manhattan? Dramatic, yes - but that's what we're looking for!!!
All thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!
