I want to take my husband to a newer Manhattan restaurant for his birthday. I've read a lot of good things about both of these. Which has a better atmosphere for a birthday dinner? Thanks.

    While I've not yet dined at Aldea (hear great things about it though), I had a wonderful dinner at Corton last month. Food is very creative. Service is very attentive.

      Both good, but very different. Depends on your husband's taste in atmosphere. Corton is the more formal, and significantly more expensive, of the two - great for a special occasion. Aldea is, I guess, smart-casual, more lively. Go to both if you can.
