I'm back to the Chow board, after an amazing recommendation of Scarpetta last year. The food and the ambiance were perfect. My girlfriend actually rated that as her favorite meal of all time! My girlfriend's birthday is coming up again this year, and I'm looking for some suggestions. We went to Babbo for my birthday, which I also loved.
What I'm looking for:
Casual setting (along the lines of Babbo and Scarpetta)
Similar price range to those two
Amazing food (obviously)
My initial thought was Craft, Marea, Gramercy Tavern, or Convivio. I've been to Convivio and Craft though, and it might be nicer to try a place that neither of us have been.
I can offer more details if necessary.
