I'm thinking of taking my new beau out for a tasting-menu-style dinner, as he's never been and would love to try it. I'm not really looking for the uber-high end, Daniel-type experience -- the less formal it is the better. And not Ko, since I've never really had a stand-out meal at any of the Momofukus. And though we love sushi, not omakase (for this particular meal). I'm open minded as far as price goes. We'll take a good room and warm vibe over white tablecloths any day (though obviously when talking about this kind of meal, I realize the fanciness is pretty much built in). Maybe Babbo? Or...?
