Tonight - Wine Freak Wants Incredible Meal for One

Thanks for your suggestions. I went to Cafe Boulud, which was kinda of like a vertical chef tasting, since I frequent the DB Bistro Moderne. The food was outstanding. Service great and it was comfortable as a gal alone. Foie gras with pears and a gorgeous sweet chardonnay, rack of lamb with a cab/sangio that knocked my socks off. Azienda 04 - WOW. One of the busboys bullshitted me about the different color labels of Dom Perignon on display. I asked him what they were. "oh, I"m learning about that now; they are all different style of champagne." I don't know a ton about champagne but thought, well how many could there be? Asked the somm on the way out and he said, "oh they are an Andy Warhol piece" LOL... I told him his busboy is a good story teller. I believed him.

Just rolled into town and have the night to myself. Love to experience a foodie fabulous place with exceptional wine. Was thinking about dinner for one at the salon at Per Se. I love the DB Bistro, but been there many times. What say you Manhattan-ites? Direct me. Would prefer something in uptown.
