Birthday dinner suggestions please :)

I'm taking my sister out for her birthday in a few weeks and can't decide on a restaurant. Last year, it was omakase at Mori. I was thinking the tasting menu at Providence or Opus? Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  1. tasting menu at spago?

    1. Can't go wrong with either Providence tasting menu or Spago tasting menu. I went to Spago for their tasting menu for the first time about 10 days ago, and it was a great experience. We did wine pairing with the food, but for my taste, it was too much wine (I could not get behind the wheel after that!), so if you are not a big drinker I would recommend just getting a glass or two, instead of the 9-10 glasses they give. Spago tasting menu for 2, with wine tax and tip - $413...
