Heading to Manhattan to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary in mid-Sept.
Spent the past week researching, and have reserved at the following (in parentheses are my no. 2s that I would appreciate some compare / contrast comments on):
Aside: I used OpenTable; is it better to call the restaurant directly?
Friday: Perilla (Aldea)
Saturday: Crispo (dell' anima)
Sunday: Standard Grill (Minetta Tavern)
I am trying for a certain amount of contrast in terms of menu and ambience, and to stay within $50pp for two courses.
