My Girlfriend and I like each other out for a dining experience on our birthdays. Past meals have included Babbo, WD-50, Mermaid Inn, & Hearth. But, I'm drawing a blank as to where to take her this year.
I'm looking for the following in order of importance:
A) A dining experience. I.e. meals that linger in your memory. New & unique ingredients and combinations, tasting menus, etc. All cuisines are acceptable. All locations in Manhattan (or near Williamsburg) are OK.
B) A place with a price-point along the lines of the places mentioned above.
C) Cozy romantic and/or polished atmosphere.
Any help appreciated.
