Engagement Restaurant Ideas in New York City

Hofman777 | Jan 5, 2011 06:00 AM

Hi...I'm getting engaged soon and need a restaurant to go to afterwards. It will just be the two of us. I'm willing to spend if it's worth it. I would prefer to keep it below $300 though I would go higher if it is worth it. I want somewhere that is romantic and would prefer to stay in Manhattan as opposed to the other boroughs. I would also like somewhere that will be really memorable. We eat any type of cuisine aside from the below caveat.

Here is the slight caveat. We are both kosher ALTHOUGH are willing to eat non-meat and non-shellfish products at any restaurant. For example, we will eat salmon, tuna, sea bass, etc. as long as it doesn't have crab, shrimp, lobster, scallops, etc. Any ideas of where we could go?

Also: we aren't really big drinkers. She is a big lightweight and I am not a big drinker. We would probably get a half bottle or something like that since we will be having champagne before we get to the restaurant.

By the way, if people know of a specific area of a restaurant that is a good place to sit that would be helpful as well (I am not talking about a private room since that is out of my price range but if its nicer to sit on a certain side or something like that).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
