We will be coming to New York in late August to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. I am looking for some recommendations on where we should eat. Planning for two or three nicer dinners (one of those being our anniversary night). We are in our mid 30's, professionals. We are looking for places with good atmosphere and good food, nothing stuffy or pretentious.
For anniversary dinner looking for mains prices up to $40. For other 1-2 nights looking for mains priced around $20-30 (less is perfectly fine too!). That price is just for entree's (not including appies/dessert/drinks/tax/tip etc). We tend to eat a lot of asian (chinese/japanese/sushi etc). So are looking for things that we may not get on the west coast.
ALSO dietary restriction: I eat fish/seafood but no other meat (ie not port/chicken/red meat). My husband eats anything. We like all kinds of food especially ethnic and ethnic/fusion.
Some places I'm considering are: Gramercy Tavern, Babbo, Perilla, SD26, Colicchio & Sons, Scarpetta, Balthazar, Locanda Verde, The Little Owl, Tabla, Otto, Craft/Craftbar, Pastis, Spice Market, Market Table
Any thoughts on these? Any recommended or should be missed? Other suggestions?
