non-typical Valentine's Day dinner

I need some recommendations for a non-typical Valentine's Day dinner, meaning something that's not a stereotypically romantic or seriously high-end restaurant. I am really into asian-fusion, Japanese, spanish...really anything exceptionally good, but a find, especially on the small side. Any suggestions? Money is not an issue; exceptional food is.

  1. If you want to do something unique, think about World Yacht. I took my girlfriend there last year for Valentine's and we loved it. The food was good, but it was the environment that she loved. Sine they sail up and down the Hudson, the scene is ever changing. Luckily we got a good weather day, so we were able to go to the outside deck and see the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge.

      "Money is not an issue; exceptional food is." You will not get exceptional food on one of these boat deals.

    2. You should try for a reservation at Momofuku Ko (very low key and exceptional food); Since Valentine's Day in on a Sunday, I strongly recommend the lunch menu. It's a bit easier to obtain a reservation for lunch than dinner.

          Why is it funny? I was very serious in my suggestion. Getting a resy for lunch at Ko isn't that hard. Food is exceptional, and since the OP said money isn't an issue, he/she should be okay with the price. The OP should also consider dinner at Ko (a bit harder to get the resy at dinner though).

      2. Blue Ribbon Sushi on Sullivan is amazing, but about the farthest thing from romantic I can think of, same with Sushi Yasuda.

        1. The original question looks like it was posed in 2007.

            And the resurrection-ist is a first-time poster with a rather transparent agenda.
