I'm thinking fusion of different flavors.
OK, I'm sending my wife and 3 friends to NYC (manhattan) for her 50th birthday.
She LOVES "California Cuisine," which may not be the correct term for what she enjoys, which is unique, flavorful cuisine served in colorful surroundings (vague enough??). We used to live in LA, and were introduced to it there.
Can anyone give me some suggestions?? I really don't want a $100 meal, but since it is a special occasion, I can probably handle around $75 per person.
