12th Anniversary Suggestions for late August?
We are two ex-New Yorkers, currently settled in San Francisco, and coming back to New York to explore some Graduate School opportunities.
I would really love some suggestions for a nice dinner place -- one that combines a romantic ambience with good food. Price, dare I say it is not much of an issue.
Any suggestions? I have been combing through the Boards and just getting confused.

I would second the Cru recommendation, and also suggest Bouley, Eleven Madison Park, Jean-Georges, or Le Bernardin. Avoid 'One if by land..'...its not really in the same ballpark in terms of food. Really, drinking or not-drinking is not a problem at any good restaurant. Some will even pair non-alcoholic drinks with your meal if you like (I've seen this done at Aquavit).
My favorite...my wife and I celebrate most big occasions at Chanterelle... Beautiful small restaurant with fantastic food...romantic and elegant.. Trust me on this one....
