I'm taking my girlfriend out to dinner to celebrate her birthday, her first since we've been together. That said we're in our mid 20s so while I first was thinking of a Daniel or something like that I was concerned it would be too stuffy/old for us.
So, I'm looking for suggested reservations for a French or New American place with wonderful food, a younger (or at least mixed) crowd and a nice, romantic vibe. Dress and cost aren't an issue. A few that first popped into my head were Balthazar, Annisa, Union Pacific and Gramercy Tavern. Opinions or other suggestions?
