30th Birthday Dinner - Notable, delicious and fun?

bokomaru | Jan 15, 2013 08:35 AM

I'm trying to decide among a couple of options for a 30th birthday dinner for my boyfriend. We are Brooklynites that love outerborough food adventures when we are on our own, but we've also had our fair share of fancy Manhattan meals with family, etc. over the years.

I want to take him somewhere for his 30th birthday that is fitting of the occasion--Something with special food that is more upscale than our typical celebratory meals, but something that will still be fun and young. I'm looking for something similar to ABC Kitchen--we ate there last year and absolutely loved the food and vibe.

What do you think is the best choice from this list (where I've been able to make reservations so far)?
- Gramercy Tavern
- Boulud Sud
- Dressler
- ABC Kitchen (should we just go here again?)

Also open to other options, but I'm a little less than 30 days out from the occassion, so I'm not postitive I'll be able to get reservations elsewhere.
