21 On Valentine's Day- Lower Manhattan

I'm going to Manhattan for my 21st birthday- which is Valentine's day! I need a recommendation for a classy pre-theatre dinner in Lower Manhattan for 2. I'm coming up from Baltimore, but I'm pretty familiar with the city.

I was hoping for the Gotham Bar & Grille, but they have a ridiculous prix-fixe menu. I'm looking to spend around $30-60 a plate, plus alcohol. I'm not going to be getting trashed- I'm headed to the Will Ferrell show after dinner. Any ideas greatly appreciated!

  1. It's tough to find a nice restaurant on Valentine's Day that isn't prix-fixe. You can try Babbo, which usually doesn't do a holiday prix fixe..sometimes they can accomodate a table at the last minute.

    1. GO to Apizz in the LES. Nice romantic atmosphere and excellent food.

      1. Check out Annisa, highest rated female chef in the city. Her restaurant is in the West Village, inventive as it is practical cuisine. Highly recommended.
