I am so sad. We'll be in town from August 6th-13th and Per Se will be closed the whole time. Why me? While we were in Napa last year, French Laundry was closed. Same week! Apparently, Thomas Keller hates me.
Anyway, now that I've mourned for a week, I need to find a suitable replacement. I need a GREAT meal to celebrate my 30th birthday with my husband. We're staying in Midtown (I think...Le Parker?), but we'll travel anywhere. I'd like it to be romantic-ish, but the food is really the main attraction for us. We'll do any price range. I would prefer no Indian or Asian (sushi is ok though.) cuisine. If I don't have to eat true French food, I'll be pretty happy, but if you say it's great, I'll try it. Thank you!
