We have been fortunate enough to try some of these fine fares and they are both costly and delicious. The flavors are refined, the service is impeccable and don't get us started on the wine... Oh, the wine! Determining to go à la carte or splurge on a tasting menu can be a tricky choice to make but we are here to tell you, you can't go wrong either way! Be sure to dedicate at least 3-4 hours to your dining experience as you want to get your $$'s worth. HINT: leave your phone at home, you'll be thankful you did. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just looking to live the life of a celebrity, these fine dining restaurants will NOT disappoint. They may come with a high price tag but you'll be raving to your friends for years to come. They say: eat a little, learn a lot. 

LE BENARDIN

One word: Luxury. Le Benardin has held three stars from the Michelin Guide since its inception in 2005 and currently ranks 24 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Led by famous chef Eric Ripert, Le Benardin was quite simply one of the best culinary experiences we have ever had. Their seafood tastes as if it was caught that morning and their flavor profiles are fresh, refined and aromatic. Their wine pairings were divine and our sommelier selected the perfect pairing for each course. The ambiance was elegant and beautifully lit, which created the perfect mood for romance and intimacy. We are sure this experience will be one you'll never forget.

PER SE

We need to start off by saying, the Oyster Pearls might be BEST thing thing we have ever tasted. Per Se is owned by Chef Thomas Keller and this establishment has earned itself the prestigious 3-Michelin Star award, as well as the attention of many other notable acclaimed food critics. Per Se offers a daily 9-course tasting menu that invites diners to experience a one-of-a-kind culinary journey. Using classic french flavors and techniques, the courses feature only the finest ingredients which create harmonious dishes. The decor is on point as Per Se is perhaps one of the most beautiful restaurants we have ever been to. Inside, they feature massive fresh floral arrangements that are customized daily... We seriously wonder who's job that is because that sounds like a pretty sweet gig. The tables are spread far enough apart so that you feel as if you're dining alone, which creates an extremely intimate setting. The wait staff glided in and out of our table with ease as if they were gazelles. Overall the hospitality was outstanding and it was a 10/10 in our books.
