The subject line should speak for itself.
We're looking for a place to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday (not Italian) before the theatre. Price isn't a consideration -- we're really looking to go somewhere special.
The restaurant we ultimately choose doesn't have to be in the Theatre District. I'm sitting on a 6:00 reservation at Union Square Cafe, but am worried that we'd be too rushed to make a 7:45 curtain to fully enjoy our meal.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
