Bostonian coming to NYC for birthday

I'll be spending my birthday this weekend in New York and would like some suggestions for places to be brought for dinner. My boyfriend and I are staying at the Omni Berkshire Place in Midtown (although he needs to be there for work on Monday, so it is on an expense account, so don't take that as any indication of what price range we are looking for!).

I like all types of food, but particularly enjoy Asian food - Sushi, Thai or Vietnamese. Nothing with pizza as we will be stopping in New Haven on the way for that!

Thanks in advance for any tips you can offer!

  1. So, what is your prices range? Please give us a per person budget and tell us if that figure includes drinks, tax & tip.

      SOTO just got a great review in the Times..go online and read..two stars...
      you might consider Kuma Inn on the lower east side.

        I think we'd be aiming per person around 60-70$ with all of the above included.

      2. It is not Asian, but go to Little Owl in West Village, just had one of the best meals there. A perfect corner spot in the neighborhood-y village. The seared scallops and meatball sliders make great starters, and the pork chop is the best I've had in a long time. The fish was also excellently prepared, as were the desserts. Service excellent.

        Go to Little Branch nearby for drinks afterwards - it is an old speakeasy serving memorable classic cocktails - go for the manhattan.

        Happy Eating - and happy birthday.

          I think you're looking for Shun Lee West across from Lincoln Center for good Asian cuisine.
