"Experience" Restaurant NOT in Times Sq - cool aesthetics?

pepper1983 | Nov 24, 2009 01:20 PM

I have been searching for the perfect restaurant for over an hour now on Chowhound but can't find exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm considering throwing in the towel and taking my boyfriend to NINJA New York for his birthday but it's gotten such terrible reviews, I'm hesitant.

My boyfriend is very into art and aesthetics and he's turning 26 on Friday (Nov 27th). I'm planning to take him to a Burlesque show at 9pm so we need to be out of the restaurant by 8:30pm.

Details:
- Looking to spend about $30 - $60pp
- His favorites are Mexican and Japanese
- Ideally below midtown, can be in Brooklyn
- An "experience" - not a corny one, but something fun and cool (you know, inherently NYC) since it's his birthday. He's been in the city for 3 years and we've been to your typical wine bars, etc. - I want this to be something special and fun. If it looks cool inside, he'll dig it.

I'm sorry if I'm abusing Chowhound, I'm just desperate at this point!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
