Husband's 35th Birthday Dinner - Marea or something else?

whethergirl | Jul 16, 2012 11:29 AM

Hi New Yorkers!

I'm a Philly-based foodie taking my husband on a surpise 35th birthday trip to NYC, just for one night. We'll be staying at Le Parker Meridien in Central Park South.

I have booked a 6:15 reservation at Marea but some of the reviews on here have me second-guessing. I would love a great seafood/American/eclectic menu but don't want to spend an arm and a leg (thinking max around $100pp for food, pre-tax and tip), so places like Le Bernardin are out.

We would love to be able to walk someplace since we are only there for the one night - otherwise, I'd book Craft in a heartbeat. We loved the LA location and we're looking for something similar.

Other options I'm considering are Nougatine and Bar Americain.

Any ideas for us? Thank you!
