Hi - I'm a college senior who lives upstate, and will be interviewing in Manhattan next month.
I would like some recommendations for a memorable solo lunch. I have had no exposure to fine dining, but thought I would give it a try after watching Eric Ripert, Mario Batali, and Jacques Pepin on TV.
I have no food aversions, like all available cuisines in my small town, but have not travelled much. I have saved $100 for my first high end meal in Manhattan (inclusive of service and tax, I will not be drinking any alcohol). I will be wearing a suit and tie. A friend of mine recommended Delmonico's but I thought I would solicit other opinions.
Thank you for any suggestions.
