My new hubby and I chose to delay our honeymoon ’til November. (We’re going to the Bahamas, woo-hoo!) However, a few days before we leave for the Bahamas we’ve decided to extend our trip with a long weekend in NYC. I’m not that familiar with NYC, so I was hoping for some advice: we’d love to go out to a romantic fine dining restaurant…can anyone make any recommendations? We’ll be staying in Manhattan near the WTC museum, and are planning on taking cabs around, so we don’t mind where it is, so long as it’s in Manhattan.
Thank you for any help! 🙂

Budget? Per Se, Picholine and Daniel all spring to mind

@LGenz: we’re okay if dinner costs upwards of $200

are you staying at the hilton? thats where we stayed which was right next to wtc. We only had one special dinner night but i would highly recommend Tartinery. Its French and it was delicious. Ive also heard great things about “Delmonico’s” (steakhouse) but i didnt get to try it yet. I LOVE NY have fun!
ETA: tartinery was really romantic, it was a small restaurant, dim lighting, small table so it was very intimate and it had really modern decor which i loved.

I adored Geoffrey Zakarian’s restaurant. It’s called The Lambs Club and is located in a gorgeous Art Deco hotel. We preferred it over Tom Colichio’s restaurant, Craft.

@HeLovesDogs: The place and La Lanterna di Vittorio are nice. Been to both for romantic dinners & drinks with FH.
EDIT: Just remembered: Felice 64. It’s more of a wine bar but it’s just adorable setting with great food and awesome wine selection.

Gramery Tavern!! Truly amazing food and the service is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. Need to go to the bathroom? They’ll escort you there instead of just pointing in its direction. Plus the restaurant itself is just beautiful and it’s a truly special experience. Also go for Greek food at Pylos in the East Village. Not quite as over the top as Gramercy but still very romantic and delicious.

@HeLovesDogs: you should check out Ayza Midtown (or west village, but I like the midtown one better). The food there is delicious and its this cute little Place

A historically romantic one is One if By Land, Two if By Sea. Its in an old carriage house in the village and is super cozy.

I second Picholine!! It’s very intimate and romantic, the food is excellent, and the cheese cart is the aboslute best.
I also recommend Jean Georges (main dining room), NoMad, and Kyo-ya (delicious and beautiful Japanese food.)

@HeLovesDogs: we ate at Ilili the night we got engaged and went back again the next time we were there. It’s really good. We also really liked the Stanton Social. Also, cabs cost SOOO much, if you are going far. I would really recommend taking the subway if you are going from downtown to the Central Park Area.

If you like steak, keens steakhouse was really nice and romantic. You can walk there from Times Square.
