Hello everyone--I am trying to plan a birthday dinner in early May for my boyfriend's 25th. We are both big-time foodies and I am looking for something extra special for him for the occasion--a culinary experience, if you will. We went to Babbo last year and loved it. I started making this list of restaurants to consider, but I find that most are too expensive--I was hoping to spend under $300 altogether.
-Eleven Madison Park
-DB & Donatella
Our favorite restaurant is Degustation, but we've been there already so I want something new. I would love to find a tasting menu with more than 3 courses for under $100pp with a great atmosphere. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. We live downtown but will be uptown for the evening so any neighborhood is fine. Thanks!
