This will be just for 2 (husband and myself) we are in early 30's and are amazingly excited to not have young children with us. Want to eat somewhere that is very "New York" that we just absolutely have to eat at and cannot find anywhere BUT NY. We'd probably want to spend around $200 (not including alcohol) and atmosphere is a MUST! Any suggestions?! Don't want a place that is horribly loud OR quiet but a place that has wonderful food. Seafood, Italian, steaks, French...possibly trendy and chic and just NICE. Please and thank you!

      The Modern - Dining Room or The Bar Room.
      Around four blocks from the theatre.

        Keen's Steakhouse, I'd say. It is a classic, totally New York restaurant. However, it is not chic or trendy, but indeed very nice and has a great atmosphere.
