birthday recommendations...Wallse?

sam | Sep 17, 2005 05:20 PM

so, my birthday is coming up and that usually means picking one nyc's top restaurants to go to with the girlfriend and my family. in the past, we've gone to babbo (frankly, underwhelming), gotham ( favorite), bouley (#1 restaurant in the city in my opinion), gramercy tavern (meh), and a host of other places that were more casual (artisinal, strip house, etc...)

i need to pick a spot for this year and im coming up empty. i cant pick per se or masa though that would be my choice (too expensive frankly). i was thinking craft but my girlfriend is a pesce vegetarian and was worried that in a group setting, it would be hard to find stuff for her. ideally, id like a place below 23rd street and not hip because i will be with my folks.

im thinking of wallse...i heard great things...i want something mindblowingly good...or a place we'll be thoroughly impressed with when we leave...any recommendations? if not, i might just do bouley again.

thx in advance.
