I am seeking a fantastic culinary experience for my husband on his 37th birthday. I would take him to Ginza Sushi Ko but it's simply too expensive. I am happy to blow $200 for dinner, but not per person. Additionally, since he collects wine he'll likely want to bring a bottle so $200 really is realistic.
We went to Patina a couple of years ago and were seriously disappointed. We have been to JiRaffe and enjoyed it considerably.
I'm considering Josie and Alex but know little about the latter. Are there secret, fantastic restaurants out there that are under the radar?? He is a real gourmet and gourmand so I really want to deliver something extraodinary.
Thanks for your help!
