Anniversary - Wife is kind of picky

sphelthead | Sep 23, 2008 02:12 PM

I need a top NYC restaurant for my anniversary. My wife gets put off by French type menu's but often likes the food I order at nice restaurants (I recently got her to fall in love with wild boar once she gave it a chance, and yes I know wild boar is not French, I was just making a point). Is there a great restaurant that has a menu that won't freak her out? We have been to places like LeCirque and she just stares at the menu and gives me a look like I hate everything on this menu (even though she usually enjoys the food in the end). She is very simple, loves Mexican (I know NY has not figured out Mexican yet), Hibatchi and simple Italian dishes. However, it's my anniversary also, and I don't get to eat at the type of places I would like to go very often. Is there any middle ground? Is there place with enough inventive but "normal" choices, but still some interesting things for me? Price is not important, cuisine is not important, but a cround under 40 is important to her.
