I am in NY at the end of the month on one of my visits and as ever will be staying with long suffering relatives.
My usual way of putting a salve on the chinese burn that is my presence is to take them somewhere spectacular. Past venues have included JG's ( ugh! ) Gotham, Grammercy, Union Square, Esca, L'espinasse, Blue Ribbon and Boulez etc etc.
I am really looking for somewhere new and interesting. think less chowhound and more schmancy
Location does not matter although they are extraordinarily boroughphobic and rarely cross the B&T's.
Money ( within a budget of c$400 for three ) is not too tight, so any and all suggestions much appreciated
