First time to NYC and can only have ONE good meal!

Hi Hounds!

I'm SO excited - I've booked my flight to NYC for a long weekend in March and am now trying to figure out my food itinerary! Unfortunately, due to time and $, I have only ONE chance to go out for a nice dinner. Where to go? I had narrowed my list to: Babbo, Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe. Which would you choose? or, am I missing something else that I should definitely go to? I am looking to spend less than $100 pp (I'm not a drinker).

btw, I called Babbo to try to make reservations and the only time available they had for me was 5:45! I took it anyway, and will cancel later if I choose not to go.

We will be staying at the NYC Hilton (not Times Square) so any other recs for more affordable meals nearby would be much appreciated too!

Thanks!
