I've gone around and around trying to decide about my girlfriends birthday dinner thanksgiving weekend and am throwing in the towel and turning to the experts. Waited until the last minute last year, so this year (still cutting it close...) I want something pretty special, but am not really into PerSe for this. I've contemplated Bouley, Jean Georges, Daniel, and the likes - would like to do tasting (wine and food). We are both adventurous eaters and up for anything except a steakhouse (wrong vibe), Japanese or Babbo(eat it often). with the previous mentioned places, I'm also totally open to lower-key types of venues (annissa, etc), and would actually prefer downtown (but not a must). We aren't bent on celeb chefs or being at the must-be place, just love and will pay for great food and service to compliment a special occasion.
I wondered about Montrachet?
Any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!! thanks in advance, 'hounds!
