Special birthday dinner - suggestions, please!

First, a heartfelt thank you: based on your recommendations, had a wonderful time at Eleven Madison Park.

Need to take a dear, dear friend out for her birthday. She (and I) prefer someplace that isn’t into very ‘heavy’ foods; seafood is always a plus. We DO like tasting menus, though it isn’t mandatory. She just moved to the UWS, so I thought perhaps to try something there, though the choices seem limited for something ‘fancy-ish.’

Some thoughts based on my perusal of recent comments: Telepan, Picholine, Sushi Gari (though I hear Yasuda, on 42 St. is a better option). 'Course, it doesn't have to be the UWS: but it would be nice to give the new 'hood a shot given that we always seem to go downtown (or east) for culinary adventures.

Looking forward to your great suggestions!
