My birthday is coming up next week and I have reservations at Bouley. I am in the social work business so I do not make a lot of money and my birthday is the one time of year my boyfriend and I really splurge. I have heard recent comments that Bouley has gone downhill--is this true? I don't want to blow a lot of cash and not have a good time. The last birthday dinners were GT and Nobu. Would Gotham Bar & Grill be better?
