My bf is defending his thesis at the end of march and i want to take him out to a fabulous dinner to celebrate. This is a huge milestone, so i need it to be really special... We love places like Allen and Delancey, the Modern bar room, and Employees only- creative food with a funky vibe. He, for instance, loved Stanton Social ( i wasnt as much of a fan). However, we are also big fans of places like Perry street and Gramercy Tavern-classic, comfortable places. Basically, im looking for a place with great food and ambience thats not tooooo stuffy but IS a special occasion type of place. Price is not too much of an issue, though i will say that perse is probably a bit too much :)
thank you in advance for the advice!!
