Downtown anniversary dinner w/ lively atmosphere?

I'm trying to book a reservation for Saturday June 23 for my anniversary. Since we rarely get to run into the city for dinner (ah, life with a baby!), I want it to be as perfect as can be!

Was originally thinking of doing La Bernardin or EMP, but decided I wasn't in the mood for precious and fussy elegance.

Looking for something more downtown that has a lively atmosphere, but still has exceptional food. I'm open to all cuisines.

I'm currently holding reservations at:
Lupa
Raouls
15 East (I know the sushi gets great reviews, but is it a sleepy place?)

Any other recommendations? Less concerned about $ and cuisine. More concerned with killer food and good energy. I'd also be open to a no-reservation place, if it meant we could sit at the bar and have drinks beforehand. We've already done Gramercy Tavern, btw.
