A Nice place for a sweet birthday dinner near Rockefeller Center

Hi all,

Its my Daughters 25th BD. We need find a place for a nice dinner tonight. I am not as familiar with good places around Rockefeller Center ( we plan to get a night cap at the bar in the Rainbow Room as She has always wanted to go there) I am hoping to keep the tab down to around 20-30 PP . Ideas?

    That's a tough area for that price range. The cafe at Aquavit has a $36 prix fixe menu:


    La Bonne Soupe is relatively close by and gets some good feedback here, though my husband thought it was pretty mediocre.

      Thanks! I will look into Aquavit. Is 36 the dinner prix fix?

      how far you willing to travel? rock center doesn't have a great selection but if you go a little east, west or south there are spots for what you are looking for.

        You could try La Bonne Soupe on 55th between 5th & 6th Ave. There is always a nice vibe and the food, while simple is hearty and good.
