Help with new parents' rare night out

It's almost my birthday so we trying to plan to get a sitter and go out for a nice meal. Pre-baby, we might have tried to get a reservation at someplace like Le Bernadin (pre-fixe, multicourse, dress up, expensive, etc.). Now, I think we'd prefer something more laid back but still refined -- I am thinking more along the lines of Craft, but not Craft as that's where we went the only other time we've done this in the last year. I think we're open to anything, but not huge sushi-eaters.

  1. Tocqueville
    The Nomad
    Colicchio and Sons

    1. Jean-George (maybe not laid back enough)
      NoMad (but the Parlour room or the Fireplace room)
      Gramercy Tavern
      Mas La Grillade
      Mas Farmhouse

        1. Nougatine is the laid back version of Jean Georges.
          Riverpark has a nice unusual location.
