We're coming in to NYC from Chicago for a few days before and after NYE. I don't really want to spend the $4-700/person at places like Per Se, Daniel, etc. We'll try to get there another night. Oy, is it hard to see those prices when Next is a right around the corner and a quarter of the price. Anyway, I've been searching for some alternatives and got a rec for Gotham. It's booked...and I'm looking for similar type places. Great food, pricey but not silly expensive, fun (and/or very unique) atmosphere. Early 30's...no restrictions dietary, preference, or otherwise (2-300/person is feasible)...have zero interest in being around Times Square or standing in or anywhere near a bar. We'd like to get dressed up, eat some great food late, drink way to much booze, and cab it back to the hotel after a toast at the table. Any thoughts?
