Birthday Dinner

  • 3

It's that time again...dh's birthday is coming up and I want to find a good place. If anyone saw the write-up of Rustican in last Wednesday's NYT, it sounds like the perfect choice: good food, heavy on the pork products, a huge choice of great beers, a nice room with a casual vibe. Sadly, it is in Chicago and we are in Forest Hills altho I would like to have dinner in Manhattan. Money IS (sadly) an object: I don't want McDonald's, but I'd like to stay away from Per Se prices as well. (Birthday is actually in July, but a lot of places take reservations a month in advance.) Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

  1. There's a huge monetary span between McDonald's and per se. So, in order to suggest places in-between those that will fit *your* wallet, please give us your per person budget for food only (drinks, tax & tip additional).

      I'm looking for apps in the $9 to $15, entrees in the mid-high 20s and low 30s.

      Maybe Resto, Irving Mill, Spitzer's Corner?
