my brother is coming to visit in mid december so i'm trying to think of some restaurants to take him to while he's here. by "experience" i mean exceptional food that's creative with unique flavor profiles (like Jean Georges) or a unique dining experience (like bo ssam at Momofuku). it doesn't have to be trendy. he's a fairly adventurous eater but is a workout fanatic so he avoids carbs. the no-carb thing isn't that big of an issue since he generally doesn't have a problem finding something on the menu to order but we'll probably lean towards a restaurant with a good selection of meats and fish on the menu.
i'd prefer to keep it under $100 per person with tax and tip but i don't really have a cap on my budget.
anywhere in manhattan under 86th st.
last time i took him to JG so i was thinking EMP for the tasting menu. also, was considering yakitori at Tori Shin. any suggestions?
