My mother is coming in to town from southern California to spend Christmas with me. She hasn’t been here in over 20 years, and I would like to treat her to one really fabulous dinner while she is in town. As long as it’s manhattan, neighborhood doesn’t matter. I’m thinking max $150/person for food only. Restaurants I’m considering: degustation, convivio, eleven Madison park, and craft, although I’m definitely open to other options. I haven’t been to any of the above, but have been dying to try them all, along with a few others that are too pricey. Also, I’m a little concerned about the timing of the visit and availability of reservations. I’d love to do make this our Christmas eve or Christmas dinner, but that’s not mandatory. Thank you in advance for your advice!
