I will be spending a long weekend in NYC with my husband to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I'd love to hear about 4 really great restaurants -- preferrably costing about $150 for dinner for two (including alcohol, tax and tip), but we'll pay more for exceptional food. (We're also willing to go out for a great lunch.)
We enjoy all kinds of cuisine. Our preference would be for places that are unique or unusual, or else something you can get only in New York. (We live in DC, if it matters.) We're willing to dress up, but a casual place with great food would also be fine.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
