hard to please-- surprise bday
Planning a surprise party for my girlfriend--fairly artsy, adventurous eater--looking for a place accommodating to a group, but still giving off a fun and trendy vibe. no italian, traditional american, american chinese, or korean.
lower manhattan, GV preferable, but willing to go as far north as the 30s or south around canal. suggestions?
as far as price range goes, anything from cheap to moderately priced would be lovely.
How about Giorgione? It's owned by Giorgio DeLuca from Dean & DeLuca. Their brick oven pizza is amazing. I've only been there once but the experience was really good. I had the linguine with manila clams. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce very tasty. My friend had the tuna with lentils and tomatoes. For dessert we shared the vanilla cheesecake with caramel sauce. The sauce was just ok, but the cheesecake was to die for, sooo creamy!
