Visiting NYC - can finally afford a GREAT meal. Help!

Fabulous. Thank you for the input. I'll begin with these, but feel free to keep 'em coming... We have not yet determined our budget. We don't want to limit our options.

And we have no fear of Brooklyn, by the way- we lived there too.

Visiting NYC - can finally afford a GREAT meal. Help!

So my husband and I went to college in NYC and lived on a tight budget there for years. We are finally returning with healthy appetites and more money to spend on an excellent meal. But we don't know where to start. We want one, special, anniversary meal. No seafood (I'm from Seattle and you can't beat that!). And I'm not a sushi fan. All else is fair game. I've been trying to get a reservation at Babbo all morning, but can't get through.

Please, send any and all recommendations. Thanks!!

Eastside Party for 10 - 12

Thanks! My only concern with Lou is that they do not take reservations on a Saturday. It is a pretty small room.

Eastside Party for 10 - 12

I'm planning a mellow bachelorette party for about 10 to 12 women. Food and wine are priorities as is a reasonable price and a relatively intimate setting where we can all hear each other. I'm thinking small plates. I'd like to stay on the eastside, but will also consider Culver & Mid-City.

Here is a short list of considerations. Any input/suggestions are greatly appreciated as I need to get this together soon.

Thanks!!!
