3 yr (dating) anniversary dinner ideas?

kareny123 Oct 2, 2006 06:02 PM

Looking for a special occasion restaurant; top-notch service and either really delicious or really interesting (but still good) food; HOWEVER, we would both prefer a comfortable (i.e., not stuffy) atmosphere w/ diverse patronage. A place w/ a fabulous tasting menu (pref <100pp) would also be nice... downtown location preferred but not necessary.

Last yr's dinner, which was fabulous, was at wd-50.

thanks in advance for any advice!

      What about Blue Hill? Fits the bill, and if you tell them it's for your anniversary, they're sure to give you a little extra attention.

        i've been to blue hill before so i'd rather go somewhere new; one of my first choices was blue hill at stone barns but apparently u need to book 2 mo's in advance.. :(

        It's not downtown but Telepan fits the other requirements

          I have a little question too.
          What's the noise level at Cru and Telepan?

            Eleven Madison Park is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. The tasting menus are beyond your indicated budget; however, do the 3-course prix-fixe ($76) and order Chef Humm's sensational duck for two. You won't be sorry! Perfect service, a gorgeous space, and relaxed ambiance.
