My mom is turning 60 this December and I'd like to take her to the finest vegetarian tasting menu in NYC. Daniel, Per Se, Jean Georges etc...Price is not an issue. I'd love it if the place did not insist that all table-members have the veggie menu, as my dad is a die-hard carnivore. If that's not a possibility, no prob. I'm interested in finest.
My mom pretty much so hates eggs and heavy butter/cream based sauces- lighter French is better for her, very ethnic, bold flavors a plus.
What do you guys suggest?
