I am bringing my SO up to the City for his b-day wkend. I have been reading some articles and previous posts, and would like some help now that I have narrowed down the choices. He is a total foodie, but this is a surprise, so I will get no input from him. He pretty much eats everything, and he loves tasting menus.
For his b-day dinner, looking for great service & atmosphere w/ amazing food. I prefer a setting that is not too stuffy, though formal is ok. A place befitting a special occasion, but with some style. I was thinking:
For the other night, I want some place a bit funkier with top notch food - preferably less expensive.
If any of these would work for his b-day, I'm totally open to that as well.
If my nominees are bad, please tell me. (Should Boulevard be on this list?) I am so excited to visit such an amazing restaurant city (no offense to L.A.), and with only two dinners, I need chowhound help!
Thanks in advance.
