    You can easily get reservations at Per Se if you wait till the week before and use OpenTable. Worked for me several times..

    Not enough of one to take the woman you love to a fucking steakhouse on your anniversary.

    For your wife or both of you, a great spa experience on Saturday, Saturday night, room at a nice hotel & room service. Sunday go somewhere you both like but something low key.

    Happy anniversary to you and Mrs. Mafoo

    As I have suggested to others in the past, go to Eleven Madison Park. Its dining room is spectacular and very romantic, i took my GF there recently to celebrate a building completion.

    I wasn't going to mention it here because it is closed Sunday, but I always thought it was a stellar under-the-radar restaurant that could compete with the big boys. Sure enough, just yesterday given 4-stars by the Times.

    Completely agree on EMP. With the new rating will probably be a lot harder to eat there.

    yeah, a shame if it becomes unbookable. But it deserves the rating, well done.

    That butter poached lobster tail was pure bliss - and that wasn't even the entree!!

    Took my wife there in 2001. Henry Kissinger was at the table next to us. Pete Peterson was two tables away.

    Take her back to the first restaurant you took her too. Sentimentality always wins.

    I'm not very good with tehMathes, but if you take her out on Saturday night, and stay past midnight, then it's technically your anniversary day.

    If the wife will agree to this, go to Robert's Steakhouse. [​IMG]

    I have not been there in a while but this was my favorite romantic spot in the 90s.

    Somehow this doesn't surprise me.

    Foof - Happy Anniversary! Are you guys really into/appreciative of classic French cuisine? If so, go. However, I find these restaurants overwrought and always disappointing (from a gustatory viewpoint) - I can't imagine a young couple having a good time at one of these places, but I'm sure you're much more cultured than me. Lot's of better choices for a nice quiet romantic dinner.

    Definitely. I recently had dinner there and I'd describe it as bland.

    I have not been in a couple of years, but recall that I enjoyed an anniversary dinner at the Modern.
