Wife and I'll be in NY for one night--Oct 16--and are going to make it our 1st anniversary dinner even though we'll be a couple weeks out--dangerous, I know.
I assume there are good suggestions in this thread--unfortunately most of these places are already booked on Friday the 16 unless we want to eat at small timers' hour, i.e., 6pm. Any new recs? Unlike mafew, we probably prefer Italian to French but are open to whatever, and also unlike mafew, budget is not unlimited. Staying in the meatpacking dist, it seems, but don't need to eat there.
