Another 40th birthday in NYC...Bouley and Empellon Cocina? Help!

saintp | Oct 5, 2013 02:38 PM

Hello. I posted on here in Jan. for my hubby's 40th and in April for a visit with in-laws. Now it's time for my 40th in November. As much as I would love to revisit Ssam Bar (for the 3rd time), I feel the need to try some new flavors and venues. Our first night will be in Brooklyn, with one night in Manhattan. I just read about Bouley's 5 course lunch and it looked lovely. Would that be too much to pair with a dinner at Empellon Cocina...or Louro...or Minetta Tavern...or (insert your fabulous suggestion here).

I really just want to eat while we're here (which is why we're not headed to the Adirondacks or Vermont or anywhere else within a 3 hour radius)...so any input would be appreciated. For my 40th dinner I would like good food, good (not stuffy) atmosphere, inventive cuisine, with the price topping out at $150-200 for 2 (dinner, drinks, tip).

Thank you!
