special duo birthday dinner in NYC

visiting NYC from sydney next weekend. one dinner will be our birthdays. we've been to NYC few times and NOW i want to treat my hubby for SPECIAL dinner. he eats everything except indian. is there any place that has ahh-mazing food WITH great vibe??? nothing stuffy (daniel's) or quiet (EMP, yasuda). are my options limited to union square cafe, gramercy, gotham? are these too casual (the dutch, 15 east, nomad)? BTW, we've been to babbo more than a dozen times already. please HELP
