Celebratory Break-Up Dinner

I recently got out of a relationship, and my foodie best friend suggested that we treat ourselves to a nice meal out (ex was not exactly beloved by this friend!). I rarely spend much when I go out to eat, so as excited as I am by this idea, I am also a little overwhelmed by all the possibilities and would love to hear which restaurants my fellow SE'ers think are appropriately celebratory without breaking the bank. I'm not a fan of sushi or Italian and don't want to spend more than $20-$25 on an entree but am otherwise open. Someplace in Manhattan or Brooklyn would be preferable.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
