Birthday Dinner: Scarpetta? Perilla? Others?

Ok, I tried this before, but now I've done some research. Looking for a place (downtown) to take dh for birthday dinner. I want nice, but nothing too "posh"--it's not really his style. I don't mind spending money, since it is his birthday, but things are a LITTLE tight right now, so if we can keep it under $150 (not counting drinks or tip) or so, that would be a plus. (Probably unrealistic.) So far I've checked out sites for Perilla, Scarpetta and Good. I thought about and rejected Minetta Tavern because I don't think we're cool enough to get in and I don't want a restaurant that's heavy on steak (it's all Bruni talked about in the review). Also, I think it might be out of our price range. If it's any help, our favorite restaurants in Manhattan are Babbo and Craft . Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
