We'll be in NYC for our 1 year anniversary over Memorial Day weekend and want to go somewhere special. I've asked some friends who have recommended DavidBourke&Donatella, Jean Georges, and Le Cirque (we've been to the one in Vegas). Just wanted to see if any Manhattan ChowHounds had other suggestions/comments. We like good food, are willing to spend some moeny, and want a romantic atmosphere, but don't want a place with a $250 pp 9+ course tasting menu.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
