Help me decide where to go for my birthday

I know, I know, how many questions like this are out there? But I am a somewhat regular on the Manhattan board and at a loss!

Hubby and I kind of dropped the ball and did not think about this until last night. We are celebrating my birthday a day early, Saturday 2/23, and missed the window of opportunity to book at some of the better restaurants for the time we want, around 8pm. I really wanted to go to Minetta Tavern, but they only have 5:30 and 10pm.

We love Italian, but I am thinking of something different this time. Maybe Indian? French? Not Chinese, Japanese or sushi. Budget is really not a problem, though Per Se is out of the question. Obviously great food is a must but a very good wine and cocktail list is a big plus. Anywhere in Manhattan is fine. I looked at The Modern and they have a reservation for the time we want, but the menu did not grab me. People seem to love The Modern on this board; am I missing something?

I'm not usually this lost, but I need help this time. Thanks.
