Birthday Dinner Prix Fixe with Wine Pairing?

I would appreciate a recommendation for a nice place to take a friend for his 50th birthday.
There will be 4 of us (2 couples) and I'd love it if we can have something for $150 or less pp.
They are coming in from NJ so would like the restaurant to be convenient to one of the tunnels.
Cuisine choice is open but we'd like a spot with good service.
Thanks in advance.

    Lincoln would be perfect. They have a tasting menu With wine pairing at 85 &55, and also ala carte. Service is impeccable as is the food. Location could work also.

      Lincoln is a great suggestion.

      Also consider Ai Fiori. The four course prix fixe is $79. They might be able to do a wine pairing within your budget.

        I really loved Ai Fiori! The tasting menu is an AMAZING value. Please also consider Tocqueville - they have a very reasonably priced lunchtime prix fixe with wine pairings, and I believe they also have one for dinner that would be within your budget. A very special restaurant with truly top notch food. http://fritosandfoiegras.blogspot.com...
