Multi-course meal with wine pairing for under $100 per person?

Does any one have any suggestions for a dining experience (with wine pairing) on par with Sona, Hatfield, etc. for under $100 per person?

    not exactly under 100 but at 100 is the tasting menu at the foundry on melrose. I would put it definitely in the same catergory as the menus at hatfields and sona and the 5 courses with wine pairings for each course is 100. Last time I went it was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in a long time on all accounts, food, service, ambience etc.

        There was a thread a few weeks ago on "quality tasting menus that won't break the bank," with a number of good suggestions. Here's the link:

          I think you're kind of asking for a miracle here, but your best bet is definitely Lucques's Sunday Supper. It's $45 per person for 3 courses (sans booze), I didn't get wine pairings when I went but I imagine they would do them.
