Fancy Dinner for ONE.... suggestions?
Due to a few converging circumstances I have found myself with $200 of "fun money" in my pocket and a night to myself this coming Saturday. I'd love some suggestions for a place to go for a fancy meal by myself.
While I am planning on an earlier dinner (6:30ish) its still last minute in the grand scheme of things so I'm guessing my best bets will be places with a bar which is also good given that its dinner for one. Doesn't have to be a tasting menu though I do want to do at least appetizer, entree, dessert (and wine or cocktail(s)).
I'm currently thinking Marea or Eleven Madison Park but would love a few other suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
I had dinner at the bar at Picholine a couple of times and was never disappointed. You can have the tasting menu or a la carte when you eat at the bar.
There is also the bar room at the Modern in the MOMA. They always have a couple of tables that you don't need any reservations for.
I also ate at Porterhouse in March when I was in NY and it was excellent. It is also a beautiful place to have dinner.
Bar Boulud is also a nice place and there is a communal table, which can be kind of fun if there are interesting people to talk with.
Marea now offers a 4 course meal for $89. The food is incredible and so are the cocktails! Also, I love the bar there, so if you wanted to eat at the bar and enjoy the company of others that's fun too.
