My partner is celebrating her 30th next week and we want to go somewhere special. In the past couple of years we've celebrated at places like Annisa and Blue Hill, but money is a little tight this year and we're looking to stay below $150 for food+wine, if possible. Additionally she's stuck in an evening class in Park Slope until 9:30, so we're planning to eat somewhere in Brooklyn. So I'm looking for recommendations for people's favorite places in the Slope, Fort Green, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens or thereabouts - places that will serve us something exciting in a nice room.
Here's another challenge, though. We've already eaten quite a few times at: Convivium, Al di La, Thomas Beisl, Blue Ribbon and BR Sushi, Surreal Cafe, Moutarde and Franny's. I'd like to take us someplace new for this birthday...
