birthday dinner - suggestions requested

pebbles | Apr 9, 2003 12:32 AM

I'm looking for somewhere special to take my boyfriend for his birthday. Each year we attempt to surprise each other with somewhere new. Past highlights have included: Gramercy Tavern, Babbo, Chez Michallet, etc...

Criteria - great food, great service, not stuffy (no jackets required), but not annoyingly trendy either, and a bit romantic too. Any cuisine would be fine.

I've been contemplating Union Pacific, Il Mulino...thoughts on these restaurants? Better suggestions?

In general, we prefer to spend time downtown or in Brooklyn.

Thanks in advance for your help!
