Steak for husband and other options for wife?

SC7454 | Jun 16, 2008 04:17 PM

My husband and I are staying in the city this weekend and need some help! Traveling to any section of the city is not a problem. I enjoy all kinds of cuisine and am looking for something unique. My husband...not so much. My husband is allergic to all seafood/fish and quite frankly is a beef eater (no lamb, etc.). I really don't want to go to a 'typical' steakhouse, but all other restaurants I'm looking at that interest me (Graham Elliott, Spiaggia, Everest, Alinea, Tru, etc) just won't work for my husband. For example, when I read him the 'land' menu section of Graham Elliott, he asked where the 'beef' was...poor guy. HA. He's really an unassuming, simple guy. Any suggestions on restaurants that might 'merge' our likes? I'm looking for no more than $200 per (I know that some restaurants I listed above may not have been in that range). Please note, we've been to Japonais before. My husband was 'ok' with it but doesn't want to go back. Thoughts?
