First let me apologize for my complete ignorance of where I am staying and what is in the area. This trip just came up and knowing that I will want at least one great dinner: time is of the essence.
I am basically looking for suggestions for places within walking distance or for a very special meal, a short cab ride. With reservations somewhat difficult to get (I am 5 weeks out), suggestions for a special meal would be most appreciated. I like a little edgy, or wonderful stalwarts with personality. A tasting menu is preferred.
If there any other suggestions for the area "do not miss" I would be most appreciative. So many great places, so little time...
