hi, i'm looking for a restaurant reccomendation to go to a birthday dinner with my (Polish immigrant) boyfriend who's never had French food before.
we're hoping to spend $50/person with wine and a shared dessert. could pay more, would like to pay less.
i'm using Jean Claude as a fallback, am wondering if anyone has suggestions for something better. would be extremely happy if suggestions are likely to have seared foie gras (vs. terreine). exceptional is suggestion is likely to have sweetbreads.
not looking for spa or "light" French cuisine, we love the fat and richness.
we're willing to travel anywhere we can get to on the subway with up to a 15 minute walk beyone ... not restricted to Manhattan.
appreciate the suggestions.
