I'm meeting an old friend for lunch on Friday. I've been away from the city several years now, after having lived there for almost seven.
We're both adventureous eaters, but will be limited by needing to eat close to her office on 47th & 3rd Ave. (Otherwise I'd love to try Eleven Madison Park after reading so many good things here!)
We're both on a budget, but will happily splurge a bit on this meal. ($50 or less before drinks, tip, etc. seems about right.) Ideally, we'd like to be able to take advantage of a Prix Fixe, therefore trying somewhere we couldn't ordinarily afford.
Currently considering Le Cirque and Convivio. Vong is also an option, but she has been there before. Preferences? Anywhere I'm overlooking?
