My wife asked that this year's holiday be in NYC. Have not been in....30 years (class trip).
I know I would like to try Gotham (have all 3 of Portale's books). My wife is Taiwanese, so some Chinaown recs would be welcome. Le Veau d'Or also sounds great.
It is our big vacation for the year, so some splurges are welcome.
PS Wine cellars not an issue - we don't drink.
