Nice restraunt in midtown for anniversary

  • 7

Hey guys,

I live in an outer borough and am not intimately familiar with Manhattan dining so I need some help.

I have a 1 year anniversary with my wife coming up and I'm getting a hotel room in midtown. The plan is go somewhere for cocktails and then get dinner. I'm looking at trying to keep it at or under $150 for the two of us for dinner.

Suggestions?

  1. Does that $150 include wine, tax, and tip? What kinds of cuisines are you interested in (or not)? Do you want casual....?

      Lets say $150ish (gives some wiggle room) including everything.

      We are not big wine drinkers. My wife may have a glass with dinner but I don't imagine we'll be getting a bottle.

      I was think french but really we'd be open to anything.

        Do you want to stay in midtown for dinner?

        1. re: gutsofsteel

          Not necessarily. We're open to taking the subway.

            Can you narrow down your request? There are just way too many restaurants to choose from in Manhattan. Do you want casual? How about noise level? You want a big restaurant or a small restaurant? Any neighborhoods you're intersted in (or not)? What kinds of cuisines?

    2. Try looking these up and see if any appeal to you, maybe that will help us narrow it down:

      Aldea
      Perilla
      Convivio
      Orso
      Oceana
      Degustation
      Annisa

      All of these are nice casual, not overly formal, but worthy of a special occasion IMO.

      1. Take a look at Convivo. It's one of my favorites. It's Italian and the food is outstanding. Their prix fixe 4 course might work within your budget.
