I am trying to pick a place for a 30th birthday dinner next week for my fiance and I. I have already read numerous other threads with suggestions on this topic, but I guess I am just looking for some fresh suggestions.
I was originally looking at some of the highly regarded places with great tasting menus like a WD-50 or EMP for instance, but it seems those are out of our price range. Looking to spend approx. $350 or so (would prefer to spend a little less, but could even go a little more if really worth it). That is including drinks (bottle of wine), tax, tip, etc..
We haven't lived in NYC that long, but some restaurants we have enjoyed recently include a couple of David Burke's, Momfuku Saam Bar, Red Cat, Flex Mussels.
A couple places under consideration include Modern Bar Room, Tocqueville and Oceana. More suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
