Can anyone recommend an incredible restaurant for a Birthday dinner?

I'm looking for a fantastic restaurant to take my boyfriend out for his Birthday.

Ideally, I'd like it to be in the $200 price range, but I'm willing to go a bit higher.

I'm open to any cuisine, except Chinese, Japanese and Indian.

I'd like something with a "Wow!" factor. Sensational food, being most important.

I would greatly appreciate any recommendations.

  1. I think gramercy tavern (back room) is always great for a special occassion, especially this time of year it is so beautifully and warmly decorated.

      1. I would like to know what all of you think as well. I am hosting a specical occasion the 12th and am trying to decide between Gramercy, Eleven Mad Park, and Gotham. Thinking Eleven Mad because I have not been there since new chef and getting good reviews.


        1. Eleven Mad. I've always liked it more than Gramercy Tavern, though I'll admit I haven't been to Gotham before...

          1. I'm a big fan of Aquavit for sensational food. Some speak of issues with Decor and Service, but I had an incredible dinner there about a year ago.

            Also, Craft served me an amazing dinner a few weeks back as well.
