Special anniversary dinner without BREAKING THE BANK??

Hi Hounds,

We'll be in NYC late September during our anniversary. Any suggestions for a special meal without breaking the bank?

I've been considering:

Bar at The Modern (as opposed to The Modern) inside MoMa;

the tasting menu at Le Miu;

Landmarc (Tribeca), which I heard has a nice vibe and decent food

Any other suggestions?

  1. Oh...and PEASANT was recommended. Don't know anything about that place.

    We're looking for a good-looking place, friendly service, good food... but definitely DOES NOT HAVE TO SCREAM "TRENDY" or anything like that.

    Much appreciated!

    1. You might want to consider Annisa. Very low-key and romantic, about 68 bucks for a 5 course tasting menu.

      1. Thanks, fascfoo: Been wanting to try Annisa for a long time...

        1. Raoul's @ 180 Prince Street. Great food, nice service and a real old school NYC joint. The upstairs is very romantic. Just make sure that the upstairs is open. They have a great wine list and you can impress there without breaking the bank. Have fun!
