New York is known for having many of the 5-star restaurants in the world. You may recognize the names of some of them, such as 21, Delmonico's, and others, but they aren't the only ones that are there. There are others that may not be as familiar, but they're all good enough to earn a 5-star rating.
To begin with, you're in one of the most prestigious locations in New York City. Add to that the fact that Per Se is operated by Thomas Keller, who is a well-known and very famous chef, and you know your experience at this 5-star restaurant will be very pleasurable.
You can choose from prix fixe tasting menus, a 9-course chef's tasting menu (this changes daily) or any of the other wonderful selections that are available at this very upscale restaurant.
This famous and well-known restaurant has been in business for over 75 years. At any time, you may be sitting next to an A-list celebrity, a financial giant, or even a foreign dignitary. There are several dining rooms and bars located in this restaurant. Any of them can offer you a dining experience that you won't find anywhere else.
The namesake restaurant of Chef Daniel Boulud, this restaurant is considered one of the best for celebrating a special occasion. The cuisine is French, and can be enjoyed in private dining areas or in the other rooms at this fine restaurant.
This restaurant is known for its delectable seafood, and has maintained this reputation for at least 20 years. You can choose from regular lunch and dinner menus or enjoy different selections from tasting menus. Tasting menus at Le Bernardin are a delight within themselves. They are exactly what they sound like—a sampling of several of the restaurant's signature dishes. Ordering a tasting menu is actually like ordering several small entrees. A tasting menu is a good option for people who simply cannot make up their mind.
Not only do you get to enjoy a fine meal at Adour Alain Ducasse, but you get a chance to get a glimpse of one of New York City's finest luxury hotels. This restaurant also offers French cuisine, cooked in a way that only Chef Didier Elena can prepare food.
