I'm looking for a special lunch place for an anniversary; we're already going to be on the Upper East Side, a neighborhood whose food choices I don't know at all, but are open to other areas in Manhattan (we'll be near the Whitney, but everything else is just a cab ride away...) Expensive is fine as we have a baby and it is a day off, we definitely don't want anything stuffy as far as atmo goes, though.
Open to different cuisines although I am thinking French or Italian might be nice. The one idea I did have was Felidia.
Other ideas? Thanks in advance,
