My Girlfriend and I have been dating for 2 years now and I want to take her someplace incredible and new for our anniversary. We've been to Babbo and Del Posto before so those are out.
A few guidelines:
1. Ideally, I am looking for a place with a Tasting menu around $100 a person with a nice decor.
2. We are not large Steak people. An ideal place would be Italian or a nice fish restaurant.
3. She does not like sushi so that is out as well.
I made reservations at Union Square Cafe but I'd ideally like to cancel those and pick up one of your recommendations.
Thank you so much for you time and help. I really appreciate it.
If you want to stick with Italian, Alto has a four course prix fixe for $79 (and a somewhat more expensive tasting menu that I've not tried). I finally went to Convivio this week - the prix fixe is $59, and overall it was a great meal (still working on my report) and I loved the look of the room.
Definitely get rid of those Union Square reservations. Try Blue Hill, Aureole, Telepan or Aquavit.
