I want to WOW my boyfriend--his first time to experience true NYC fine dining, I am a past resident. I need one gorgeous restaurant for Friday night. I love the decor/ambiance at Buddakan and Brasserie 8 1/2 but I hate the food. I would love to try Daniel but I'm staying away from prix fixe only menus. Any suggestions? I'm thinking Craft, possibly something in Meatpacking, something that will knock his socks off with both food quality and ambiance--something that is as big and bold as NYC and shows Manhattan off, so he knows why I'm so in love with this city. Thanks in advance!
