Help me choose a restaurant for my birthday out of these:

I want to go somewhere very special for my birthday, a restaurant I haven't tried. I'd like it to be fairly intimate and romantic.

Some of the restaurants I've been to and love include: Toro Bravo, Navarre, Tabla, Sel Gris, Andina, Oba, Belly Timber, Le Pigeon, Pok Pok, Ping, Alexis, Mint (cocktails are so good!) Mother's Bistro and Nicholas. Been to Higgins and Paley's Place but they were a bit stuffy and over-hyped.

I like adventurous food, the more adventurous/creative the better. I eat lamb, goat, any game meat, poultry (including game birds), and any kind of fish (don't eat beef, rabbit or pork so Beast isn't an option).

So far I'm thinking of:
*Ten 01 ( the lamb looks sooo good!)
*Urban Farmer
*50 plates

What would you suggest, and please add any other restaurants that you think fit the above??
