My husband and I live in Toronto and are spending our first anniversary in Manhattan. We love to eat out at home, and have been to New York a few times before. Would love some suggestions for:
1) A nice dinner in Manhattan for the night of our anniversary. Restaurants we've been looking at include Jean-Georges (though that is really too expensive for us), Perla, Per Se, Corton. Somewhere that feels a little bit special, but still with a bit of a cool vibe and not too too stuffy!
2) Any other suggestions for brunch/lunch/dinners in Manhattan and/or Brooklyn. Maybe looking for slightly more casual options, since we'll have a nice dinner the night of our anniversary. Places we've been and liked include Cafeteria, Osteria Morini, Spotted Pig, Nobu, Meatball Shop. Places we're looking at trying include Rosemary's, ABC Kitchen, The Butcher's Daughter, Da Silvano. Open to anything!
Looking forward to hearing some suggestions! Thanks so much!
