Where to go & what to know for a special restaurant meal...

So it's almost mid-terms and I have a ton of work to do, but instead of writing I'm cruising Chowhound again. I'll have an MA in about 15 months (not that I'm counting), and I have been fantasizing about my graduation meal since, well before I applied to school. I'm thinking Alinea, but it could be any where else in the US... So what I want to know is if you were to have a once in a life time meal where would you go. And oh yeah, what should I know about dining at this kind of restaurant (should I fast for 3 days to make room for a tasting menu, do I need to buy new clothes or is my nice black dress okay...). Now I can't check for responses until I finish the next section.

  1. I would re-pose or search this as a what city question. I can think of some where your time spent every meal can easily be great and at all price points (so some are modest and some over the top splurge) SF springs to mind as it's easy to navigate
