First Wedding Anniversary Dinner - visiting from DC
- KWynn Mar 30, 2007 01:18 PM
We'll be in NYC for our 1 year anniversary over Memorial Day weekend and want to go somewhere special. I've asked some friends who have recommended DavidBourke&Donatella, Jean Georges, and Le Cirque (we've been to the one in Vegas). Just wanted to see if any Manhattan ChowHounds had other suggestions/comments. We like good food, are willing to spend some moeny, and want a romantic atmosphere, but don't want a place with a $250 pp 9+ course tasting menu.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
I love davidburke & donatella. They have an amazing shortrib dish & I've had excellent meals everytime. If you go there, be sure to request a perimeter table (better yet the 1/2 circle booths for 2 which is romantic) because the middle tables are close together and not so intimate.
I also love Union Square Cafe & Cafe Gray.
oh the only thing i was disappointed with at db&d was my apple tart dessert. It was nothing special.
I must say that after hearing incredible things abotu David Burke, I went there and was disappointed. The service was below average and I felt like the tables in the dining room were on top of one another. The food was good, but based on what I had heard, I expected better. For your anniversary, I think that Jean Georges, Le Bernardin, or Daniel would all be outstanding choices. I am sure you can see their menus on www.menupages.com if you are interested. What do others think of those three suggestions?
