We will be celebrating my boyfriends 40th birthday with a last minute trip to NYC this weekend. Any advice on somewhere great to take him on friday night would be greatly appreciated. I've looked around the boards already and found some great places, the problem is that I'm looking for somewhere that we can realistically get a last minute reservation for 2 - or at least not have a 2 hour wait for a table.
Cost is not an object
Would prefer to keep it in the Union Square/Village area if possible
Preferably not Italian
I haven't been to NYC in quite a while so any advice would be appreciated!
