Looking for a delicious restaurant for a celebration

I know this is a bit broad for you guys so let me narrow it down a bit. Ideally I'm looking for a French, Italian, or American type of restaurant that serves excellent food. My sister is coming home from Japan so it's a bit of a celebration. Price-wise, an expensive restaurant is fine, but not exactly Daniel-expensive (and obviously not Per Se). It'll be a group of 5, and the total bill would be no more than $350ish. Anywhere in Manhattan would work, and any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm really just looking for excellent food. Thanks in advance!

  1. Just for the type of restaurants I'm thinking about, I'm looking into Craft, Craftbar, Bar Boulud, and, if I can convince the parents to spend a bit more money, Gramercy Tavern, although the latter could be an issue.

        1. re: martyl9


          Don't you think that is a little over OP's budget???????????

        2. Does the $350 include wine?

          It's not a GT, JG, etc. - what about a private room at Bacaro (same owners as Peasant)?
