For your "last" night in NYC: Where would you go to get all decked out? (Black Tie)

Hi Hounds,

It's looking like I might spend two-three months in the Philippines for work, and sort of would like to plan one of those *perfect* NYC nights on the town where my sweetie and I can get all decked out and have a night on the town to remember.

Normally I love the $5 Hallal cart and sitting on a stoop, eating gelato from Il Lab, but I do have a lovely vintage Dior ball gown that I practically leveraged my tutition to afford three years ago when I was broke, and would love to bust that out for a wonderful upscale evening.

So here's my request:
- pre-dinner drinks
-dinner somewhere great that you could wear such an outfit (sweetie will be in suit I guess)
- perhaps dancing?

This isn't really my scene so I am entirely not sure of where would be appropriate, although some thoughts are perhaps: The Rainbow Room (does that even exist?), drinks at the Pierre, perhaps somewhere in the Time Warner Center?

Also, think more "old new york" and less "touristy trendy" ie, please nowhere like Buddakan or Pastis/mpd standbys.

Thank you very much!
