Looking for a cool trendy beautiful place

My Boyfriend and I are two late 20's proffessional, masculine, gay guys that will be Staying at The W Union Square Hotel in June for his birthday. Looking for a beautiful, trendy, maybe out of the way place, that will amaze him with the look and feel of the place as well as with the food. Any suggestions?

  1. How about Buddakan? It is Asian Fusion but considerably better than most of the similar restaurants in NYC. Their appetizers are better, though the meat entrees are not bad either. Plenty of cocktails. It is the place "to see and to be seen". There were a lot of celebrity sights if you are into this sort of thing.

      1. Buddakan is my first thought. Great modern design, very trendy.

        1. How about the Waverly Inn--it's owned by Graydon Carter (Vanity Fair) and is so trendy they have an unlisted reservation line. http://nymag.com/restaurants/reviews/...

                I love Kittichai and Buddakan, but I think Kittichai has a great romantic aspect that Buddakan lacks (though the food is good).
