30th bday dinner in Brooklyn

My wife is turning the big 3-0 and I want to take her out for a nice dinner on her bday. We live in the bk heights area but are willing to travel. She eats EVERYTHING. Want to make it special- but nothing too outrageously expensive though. Anyone have any ideas??
Temp[o now has a $25 three course dinner from Sunday thru Thursday, $35 on Friday and Saturday. Was there on Sunday and had an excellent dinner and great service. For apps wife had the goat cheese salad, I had the polenta with sausage, both very good. Wife had the buccatini with sicilian pistachios, I had the rack of lamb ($6 supplement) both very good. For dessert wife had gelato, I had the date dessert, both very good. We were undecided about the wine, so the waitress brought us three glasses of wine to taste, which I thought was very nice. With cappucino, coffee and wine bill came to $101. A great deal. Well worth the money. Portions were also large.
I'd recommend Convivium Osteria on 5th Ave in Park Slope. My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary dinner this year. Incredible food, a great wine list, and it feels like you've left New York and headed to the Mediterranean countryside. I especially love their garden.
