Reading the boards, I have noticed a number of places do a lunch deal that is much ,ore reasonable than dinner( bouley, Tocqueville, .......) . What lunch deals do you think are the best in the city for value and quality? This would be for a birthday lunch. Willing to spend $35-50 per person plus tax, tip and drinks.......
Thanks for your help!

re: H Manning
Ok, so I have narrowed it down to 4 choices. Bouley, Jean Georges, Picholine, and Gotham. Out of those 4, which one is going to give us the best experience. This is a birthday lunch so looking for something special. I think we are leaning twoards Bouley but am still open to feedback.....
Thanks for all of your help!

Jean-Georges Nougatine. Lovely food, light airy space. Fanatastic deal (tho if you are a big eater you may find the portions on the small side - were perfect for me). Would have been worth the $$ just for the perfect warm shrimp salad.
