Some friends and I bought a voucher for a limo ride at a charity auction for the second year in a row. The voucher is for a ride to and from a restaurant on island. The question is: where should we go?
Last year, we got dressed up and went to a BYOW in Hudson (it was considered on island enough), got plastered (6 bottles of wine for 4 of us) and ate well. We would like to do something similar.
With that in mind, this is the description of my ideal restaurant:
- On island but far enough from downtown to make the limo worth it . . .
- Nice without being pretentious. We likely will bring a box of wine just for the fun of it and would like to be somewhere that will go along with our insanity.
- Some place that we can dress up without looking like complete fools (in other words, Smokemeat Pete's is out . . . I'm also a vegetarian)
- Price is not a huge concern - this is a yearly treat - but under $50 per person for appetizer, main course and dessert would be ideal.
Thanks in advance!
