Splurge dinner (boss is paying)

My husband ended the fiscal year as a hero. His boss told him to take me to dinner & splurge. I'm all open for ideas. We are not into french food...have been to Babbo many times & love it, but are looking for a different place this March but know it's closed...went to Daniel once & we loved it. We enjoy tasting menus paired with wine. Ok, Chowhouds...please chime in with where you would go if your boss gave you the same offer.

  1. You say you're not into French food but loved Daniel? Hmmm.... So, does that mean Eleven Madison Park is out? Chef Daniel Humm's cuisine is French-inspired but not classic French. (Not that Daniel is classic French either.) EMP is taking something of a beating on the overrated thread, but it's still my first pick for a sensational tasting dinner with wine pairings.

    1. I would recommend Del Posto...they offer two different tasting menus on is 5 course and one is 7 courses with that you can add wine pairings....and the restaurant is beautiful inside!

          Excellent, of course, but they don't offer a tasting menu.

        2. What about Toqueville?

          1. Aureole tasting menu with the wine. AWESOME.
