Special and/or fun Birthday Dining in Manhattan

I'm looking to find a chef's table in a high end kitchen or a super fun (wild?) and lively people watching sushi place.

I know they sound very far apart, but a good recommendation one way or the other would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance.

  1. How many people? Just two? Or more than that?

    Gordon Ramsay's restaurant in the London has a chef's table. I'd also look into Aldea.

    For a more boisterous, lively sushi place that *also* has good food, I would do Morimoto but only the chef's omakase bar, but be prepared to shell out $200+. Most of the other flashy sushi places are all style, no substance.
