Birthday dinner suggestions

Hey all -

Trying to pick a restaurant for my girlfriend's bday (will be just the two of us) which is on a Thursday in August and I am not liking any of my ideas. I want somewhere nice, but not super pricey, i.e. $50-60/person for just food (excluding tax, tip and wine) so like $200 total (maybe a bit more). She tends to really like mexican/pan-latin food (e.g. Rayuela, Hell's Kitchen) so I tried for la Esquina, which is the one place she hasn't been but couldn't get a reservation. I ended up getting a reservation at Casa Mono, which could be good I think, but wouldn't mind some other suggestions.

Love to hear any thoughts y'all have.


Casa Mono
52 Irving Place, New York, NY 10003
