Ten-year anniversary. $500 to spend on one dinner. Hit me with recommendations

Ten years! With the same man! We're blowing the budget on this one. But where?

One caveat: No where near the theater district.

    1. You could spend that on wine alone. What is your budget for food? Does this 500 include tax and tip?

      1. When: Tuesday. (As a sign of marital malaise, he had to remind me it was coming up.)

        Total budget, yes, $500. I'm not a drinker, but my husband likes a glass or two of red wine.

          You mean this coming Tuesday?

          Do you want formal, dressy? Do you want a tasting menu? Do you want a 3-hour meal at table? You want a quiet place?

          Any cuisines preference (or dislikes)?

          1. Get a suite at the Soho Grand and order room service.

            1. Can you narrow that down in *any* way? Even if it's just an example or two of something you liked?

              It'd be hard to do much better than 11 Madison Park.
