Happy Holidays All,
I'm going to be in New York for the first week of January and I was given a check for $100 bucks with explicit instructions to take my boyfriend out for lunch or dinner. So this is a no holds barred invitation for suggestions for a $50 pp including alcohol (tip can be excluded) that will make his little foodie heart swell with glee from you chowhounds lucky enough to live in new york city. We're both adventurous and all cuisines are welcome. Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Similar to EMP, the lunch at Jean Georges is great deal as well.

      Thank you all for the recommendations! We ended up at Jean Georges and it was amazing :)

      I would suggest you consider having lunch at Eleven Madison Park. 2 courses @ $28 + $12 for each dessert X 2 = $80. A bottle of wine from the special $28 list will bring the cost (before tax & tip) to $108, but well worth going over just a bit. In addition to sensational cuisine, service is very cordial and proper, and the space is gorgeous!

      Enjoy and Bon Appetit!

        Yes, EMP is a great choice. Your $100 check will go much farther at lunch than dinner, BTW, as a lot of restaurants have excellent lunch prix fixe menus.
