Me and my girlfriend (30-somethings) are from Scandinavia and are going to stay at the Waldorf Astoria in NY between 22nd of December and 2nd of January. We'd like to make dinner reservations for the 24th and 25th of December in some good restaurant, and also a restaurant/lounge for the 31st of December. Preferably a restaurant in combination with a lounge/club so that we don't have to start changing places in the evening.
I'm a complete illiterate when it comes to NY restaurants, so I'm in dire need of help.
For the xmas-dinners I'd be willing to pay around $100-$200 per person plus wine and for the new years an admission fee of $150/person is perfectly fine. Any other good restaurant and lounge bar recommendations for the other days? Our music preference is more towards lounge, trip-hop and club and we dislike hiphop.
