Relatives are coming into town and we want to go out to a really nice high end place. However, two important caviats: First, we're not too interested in the big time French places, so Daniel, Jean Georges, Cafe Bouloud, etc. I debated a bit on Flay's Bolo or Mesa Grill, but again not our cup of tea. We're thinking possibly:
Union Square Cafe
Gotham Bar and Grill
Here's the catch - we're looking for about 25-35 a person, and Gramercy and Gotham are a bit "above" that range...any opinions on the above or other suggestions for a nice sit down Manhattan meal? Thanks.
