I need a restaurant place to take someone out for a celebratory lunch. I usually loved to go to Gotham for the great food and service, but that was years ago. He likes Italian. Any ideas?

  1. Jean Georges is amazing with their $28 2 course lunch. But not Italian . . .

    1. Great lunch at Convivio--4 courses.

      1. Il Mulino would be a great place for a celebratory lunch.

        1. It's not Italian but as suggested, Jean George would be a great choice. And since it is celebratory, as opposed to say a romantic reason, I would also say Eleven Madison Park because it benefits from an air of grandness.

              Nougatine at Jean Georges. Excellent! Three Courses for 24 bucks. Best deal in town.
