Recommendations for gift certificate
I want to purchase as holiday present a $500 gift certificate to a NYC fine dining establishment. I'm in Dallas, as is the recipient couple, but the couple regularly travels to NYC. The couple is well versed in fine dining and appreciates all cuisines (though I'd shy away from Alinea-type food, since the couple has never tried it, or steakhouses, since we've already got some superb ones here). What NYC restaurant would you recommend as the best overall dining experience at this price point?
