Looking to do a tasting menu, leaning toward Italian. I know Babbo is the obvious and great choice here, but I was wondering if anyone could reccomend someplace a little more laid back and fun. I am doing Per Se for one night, but I was hoping to do something a bit off the beaten path. Does anyone have any suggestions for a tasting menu on the funkier side. I DO NOT want Asian food though. Money is not a concern, just want to keep it under $150 per person for food (no wine because I don't drink).
Thanks a lot.
P.S. I am willing to do Manhattan or Brooklyn.
