Destination Non-Traditional Birthday Restaurant in Outer Boroughs

chowder123 | Apr 22, 2008 12:18 PM

I want to take my boyfriend out for a nice/interesting dinner for his birthday but want to take him somewhere outside of Manhattan (where we both live and eat 99% of our meals) that will be exciting and worth the trip out (however long the subway ride may be). I'm not looking for the traditional "expensive restaurant," though. I obviously want somewhere that has great food and would be appropriate for a birthday dinner, but would love suggestions for a place that is either off-beat, serves an unusual type of ethnic cuisine or has an amazing and "different" type of atmosphere.

Any suggestions?
