My husband and I live in Queens, will be staying at the Bryant Park Hotel for a nice romantic weekend in the city. I've thought so many times in the past week that I had narrowed it down but now I'm just at a loss and need some help so here is my criteria.... around $300 max including, tip, tax and wine, would prefer to be around $250-275, somewhat romantic would be very nice, I don't necessarily mind slightly close tables but do like dim lighting, nothing stark and bright, always love a beautiful dining room, nothing too sleek (never find that really romantic at all), GREAT quality interesting and innovative food but not overly done. My husband loves steak as do I and I love seafood as well. Contemporary French is okay, american, italian, seafood would be okay but I think my husband would appreciate some choices for red meat.
Nothing asain and I will be celebrating with coworkers with thai two nights prior.
Thank you, your suggestions are appreciated!
