So my friend and I (both 34) are headed to NYC for Mother's Day weekend, no husbands or kids in tow. Because she has never been before, I know I will get stuck doing some touristy junk, but she has promised me I get to pick the restaurant for our Saturday night meal. She doesn't eat red meat, other than that, no real limitations on cuisine. When I was in the city last, my husband and I ate at Telepan and loved it, so something in that price range would work, upscale, but not Per Se levels, if that makes sense. A prix menu would be perfect and I think she would enjoy that as well. We're staying around 77th & 1st (UES) but are happy to travel if the restaurant warrants it. I have been cruising the board today and looking at restaurant websites but so far nothing has sparked for me. Thanks in advance for any recommendations!
