Great Dinner near Bemelmans Bar?

llinza Jul 17, 2007 09:51 AM

Husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary soon and I thought it would be nice to get a cocktail at Bemelmans bar beforehand. Can anyone recommend a great restaurant within walking distance? We like all kinds of food.

Most of the restaurants we initially thought of are all downtown and I'm not sure where the great food and atmosphere is on the UES. Price is flexible but prefer under $300.

    Cafe Boulud is practically across the street. Check online menus (e.g. Menupages). You will have to be careful to get out of there under $300 for two.

      also a short walk to Etats-Unis, a small and thoroughly enjoyable restaurant...

        The menus on Cafe Boulud's website are kept pretty much up-to-date. The same cannot always be said for Menupages. The menu is all a la carte, so, depending on what you drink, I think it is doable with that budget. Worth going there just for those luscious madeleines!
