One Night Splurge
I am making a trip up to New from the Washington, DC metro area in the next two weeks, and although it is not my first visit, it will be my first time seeing Times Square. Ridiculous? I've been to NYC almost every year in my life with my parents and every time we go, we hit Chinatown for a day and leave. This is my first trip staying overnight (3 days, 2 nights). I'm looking for a one ridiculously good restaurant in Manhattan and I've got a budget of about $100-$120 for dinner for just one night. This budget does not include drinks simply because... I'm underage (19 sucks). Two main entrees and a dessert and if you can, even an appetizer, should be included in the costs. I have been to so many forums and lists online that my head is spinning and I'm looking for an easy way out. I would prefer American, French, Italian fare, nothing Asian/Japanese though unless it's your #1. I'm looking for a modern atmosphere, something exciting and trendy. I hope this isn't too much to ask and thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
