Sometimes, you simply want a blowout meal. The kind of dining experience that goes the extra distance to make you feel special. The kind of meal where you can treat yourself and your loved ones, and maybe even feel a bit fancy doing it.
These kinds of meals don’t always have to come with a hefty price tag (see here for our list of great tasting menus under $100, for example) but for those times when you’re open to splurging — let’s say, $125 or more per person for dinner — these restaurants certainly fit the bill, in more ways than one.
From exceptional sushi omakase and fine dining institutions, to critically acclaimed Korean American tasting menus and restaurants transforming classic European fare, here are nearly 50 of the city’s most exciting splurge-worthy meals.
Newly Added: L’abeille, Al Coro, Clover Hill, Francie, Le Jardinier, Oiji Mi, and Semma.
