Suggestions for Anniversary dinner Lower/Midtown Manhattan ( last minute!)

Ok here is the update: we ended up at Bouley and it was definitely a wonderful experience. Service was great, prob since we where early? 6pm dinner. Only one other couple was in the main room.

Decor was nice, and fitting for the type of restaurant. Nothing much else to say honestly.

Once we got seated we were treated with a complimentary pumpkin soup. It was delish, flavors were simple and clear.

For apps we had the porcini and some shrimp seafood. Ingredients were fresh as can be. We really enjoyed it, wish the Porcini pot was bigger.

Entree we had sea bass and rack of lamb. The lamb was excellent. Wife enjoyed the sea bass aswell.

For sweets we had the peach and soufle. It was just heavenly but too sweet with the other complimentary cookies and flan. Sumatra coffee was on point too.

Overall we enjoyed it and would return someday.

Sorry crappy review on iPhone doing this, please excuse grammar and spelling.

thanks Ellen, i was calculating and think a dinner for us at Bouley is around 225 with tax/tip.

2entree
1 or 2 appetizer
2 glasses of wine

Is there a mandatory dress code? like i said earlier we don't have time to change. We get off work and pretty much head straight to the restaurant, we wont be in jeans and sneaker but also no suit and tie.

hey all my wife and I decided last minute to go out for our anniversary this year and i am not sure where to go . ( in 2 days!! gotta the love kids haha)

my wife likes really good steak and i prefer rack of lamb or lamb chops
We prefer a not so stuffy environment cause we just want to have a good time and food. Even a bar/restaurant is good for us. Since we gotta drop off the kids we dont have time to change.

some i have found via web searching

Nelson Blue (seaport)
Bouley ( tribeca)
Blue Ribbon ( village??)
Steak house is fine

We would like to spend around 100-150 for the both of us.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Web searching is just too big for me to plan last minute, so i wish for more direct input.

What is your favorite standing rib roast recipe?

you can Tyler's recipe from food network, he has a sage or rosemary rub with oil salt pepper.

Overall from my search when i roasted all the recipes seemed very simple. i guess the rib roast is just flavorful enough.

Standing Rib roast what temperature? (different results?)

hi fourunder, my butcher actually seasoned it for me after he cut the meat from the ribs. it was sitting in the dry rub for over 3 days. cant complain haha. i really like how the slow and low approach turned out.

Standing Rib roast what temperature? (different results?)

as promised, the roast came out great.! a little longer than expected.
12lb rib roast, 12:30pm to 5pm 48 degree to 118degrees. I wouldve started at 1130 if i knew. so it wasnt a biggie.

But man PRIME is really king!!

one of the pic shows the meat being cut and is grey/brown (cooked) but its the weird lighting. this whole thing was pink

thanks ricepad, your response confirms my suspicion! i need to gauge how long it will take for the 11lb so i can serve my guests at 6pm , so i figure i stick it in the oven at like 1pm

thanks for these tips are wonderful. i dont have a blow torch so i gonna stick with traditional oven. i notice most of you are saying to bake it at the 300 degree mark.

I have watch the Alton Brown clip on the rib roast and he does it at 200 first then 500.

thanks wattacetti i am definitely using a thermometer but i am using the lb/min as a rough guide for the whole ordeal so i can get it ready for dinner.

i have read that 120 is nice as on avg it goes up 8 degress while it sits and if guests dont like it i can always do a fast nuke or sear to cook it more.

Keep the great tips coming

Standing Rib roast what temperature? (different results?)

Hello,

I have been reading up all the available threads on cooking this hunk of meat. I have a 5 rib 11ish lb roast in my fridge now.

So what is the best way to go temperature wise?

1- 225F for x hrs (22mins/lb) then 500 for the last 15

2- 450 for 20 mins then lower heat to 300 for x hrs (22 mins/lb)

i am sure both end up in good primes, but are there different results from the 2 temperatures?

From all the searching and reading i have done, is the below accurate?
1- Slow slow road - Same color for the entire piece of prime roast
2- high then slow - outer edges of the prime roast is more cooked with inside staying pink

The high end steak houses has the mean cooked the same all around, so i assume they use the 225 method and let it sit there for 4+hrs?

Can everyone please share their view or correct me since i want to add this recipe into my list of favorites.

Also is it wise to cook the rib on a rack in the oven or let it sit in the pan with the juices.
