Tough call, I would imagine, but we'll be in NYC for my wife's birthday, and I'd love some ideas for someplace that would be celebratory for a grownup, but acceptable to bring a small child for an early dinner. (5:30-6:30 ish).
Would love dinner for 2 to come in at around $150 or less. Cuisine-wise, we like virtually everything: Bistro/Tratt., seafood, all Asian, Indian/Pak., Latin, etc. (Not huge steakhouse fans.) Not usually thrilled with hyper-"creative" fusion experiments.
Any ideas? Location not that important either, within Manhattan.
