I'm coming to NYC this week and I look for a restaurant to bring my gf. It can be anywhere in Manhattan. Looking for a cozy modern trendy place, with good food of any kind, with a slight preference for indian, japanese, seafood but absolutely not italian, I'm italian and I'm a good cook at home myself ;-). Alternatively, it could be a good bar or lounge with good cocktails. What I'm looking for is a place with atmosphere (a good view wouldn't be bad too) and not too loud cause I have some talk to do ;-)
I'm sure you can help me out there.
