A friend of ours told us that he and his wife recently went to Tru in Chicago, where he and his wife sat at the "chef's table" (which I understand is often just off of the kitchen) and had an incredible anniversary dinner that included 13 courses, several bottles of wine, a tour of the kitchen, and fantastic service. He said dinner lasted over 3 hours.
Anyway, he wanted to know whether any NYC restaurants offered something comparable. So far, we can't think of anything that offers something like that. Do any NYC restaurants offer anything like what our friend described? (Of course, even if there were a restaurant that offered something comparable, it would be an open issue as to whether such a meal would be remotely affordable in NYC.)
