vermonster:  Blue Ribbon Brasserie is a classic pick but they dont take reservations which might annoy people driving in

My other favorite restaurants for when…. other people are paying (lol) are : BLT Fish, Strip House, Market Table, Gramercy Tavern is classic, Per Se and La Bernadin are NICE nice.

vermonster:  I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer, but is there somewhere closer to home you can get a gift cert for?  I only say that b/c from living in the metro area, I know it’s a chore in and of itself just to GET in the city and costs anywhere between $30 – $100 depending on the parking situation.  I think it’s a great idea, I just know traveling to NYC can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.  It’d be a shame if they don’t use it.  

*WOMP, WOOOOMP*

vermonster:  Hmm I don’t think $300 would cover Eleven Madison Park then. You could try Jean- Georges (not Nougatine) – http://www.jean-georgesrestaurant.com/jean-georges/. We did the prix fixe menu, which includes some of the items on their most expensive menu set anyway. $118/person, plus wine, tax and tip…it should keep the bill closer to $300 than $400.

MrsBuesleBee:  I actually haven’t been there yet but it’s on my list! As is Per Se and French Laundry (umm in the very far off future).

vermonster:  I think you have some good suggestions, but I would definitely add Colicchio & Sons to the list. Two people should be able to eat there with a bottle of wine for around $300.

Another great option is Maialino for a fancy Italian joint.

 I second MrsBuesleBee’s suggestions as well.

It depends on your aunt but I might second something closer to home being easier to use
