EMERGENCY: Downtown Manhattan restaurant recommendation??

AdamAnt | Mar 10, 201408:47 AM

Dear Chowhound:

I need to find a restaurant to take my wife to for her 40th birthday (dinner, just the two of us). Can you help me figure out where to go? I'm overwhelmed with options. Here's my criteria:

• Should be in downtown Manhattan (East/West Village, LES, Tribeca, etc.)

• Should have great atmosphere (and, obviously, awesome food)

• Can be expensive (but preferably not break-the-bank, Jean-Georges-expensive)

• Above all, it should be a really special/memorable place, not just another pretty-good, pretty-fancy restaurant

Any suggestions you have would be deeply appreciated!

THANKS!
