my father just told me that he's coming up from n.j. next month to take me out for my birthday dinner... as we do every year for both of our birthdays. i hadn't realized it was coming up so soon, and haven't really thought about where we should go. it's a rare occasion that i go out for a nice (read, expensive) dinner, so i like to do a bit of research and pick a really great place.
in the past, we've eaten at Blue Hill, Union Square Cafe, 11 Madison Park, Rue 57.... looking for something along those same price lines, etc. any area is good.
also, my dad is pretty picky and non-experimental like me. he mentioned that he'd like to get a "nice steak", since we're always eating super healthy and want to splurge. although, i don't want to go to a traditional steakhouse.
thanks for any help.
