    I should have added that I am from New York and worked the city for twenty years but left seven years ago and was wondering if any good places are near by as time restraints me from bouncing all over the city. Price does not matter. Thanks

      Try Vitae, the still under-the-radar fine dining spot on East 46th, right off of Fifth Ave. The menu is inspired (creative Italian) and the decor is dazzling.

      What is your per person budget for food only? Best guidance for us as drinking habits can vary wildly. But do keep in mind that you will have to add NYC tax @ nearly 9% and 20% tip.
