OK, I want to take my BF out for a special dinner for his birthday this week, something that will wow him and thats not the norm and on the upscale side. However, he has lived in NY his whole life (he's 34) and has been to a lot of cool places. Plus, I'm trying not to break the bank since I'm a student.
I don't really have any boundaries in terms of food type...I'm open to any suggestions, he particularly likes anything spicy . As to neighborhood, would like to keep it downtown, but also open to going anywhere for the right place. Sorry for the non-specificness.
The only place I had in mind was Apizz...since I've read so many good things on this board...but anything else come to mind chowhounders???
