Mid May Birthday Dinner for foodie boyfriend.

Amnesty96 | Feb 7, 2014 02:37 PM

Hey all,

I'm an Angelino who is taking her Japanese boyfriend to New York for his birthday. We arrive in Manhattan about 4:30 or 5 probably on a Friday evening. I want to take him someplace special of course. Money is almost no object I can go pretty expensive but not like $400 for two, less than that please. (He doesn't drink much so that will probably save me some money!)

He loves Chinese food, but it looks like the best Chinese in Manhattan are all dives (nothing wrong with that, but I wanted it to have a great atmosphere) at least according to Yelp. It could also just be some awesome romantic restaurant. He's an amazing chef and a foodie by the way. (He cooks mostly Japanese). He doesn't want Japanese food because he really only enjoys it in Japan or his or his friends' home cooking. OK, he's picky.

He would eat anything else though I believe, as long as it's delicious. I appreciate any and all suggestions!
