Splurge: db Bistro Moderne
This high-end Downtown French bistro offers its exclusive Chef’s Tasting Menu in the ultrasleek Wine Cave, serving you items like escargot, duck pate and suckling pig for $125 per person (additional $75 for wine pairing).
Budget: Bin 18
You may not get set up inside an elite wine vault here, but this intimate Downtown spot offers a cozy setting and tasty prix fixe menu of its own (think artichoke carpaccio, mussels arrabiata). The cost is just $35 per person - and includes one glass of wine.
