Carrie went here for her birthday in Sex and the City - what else can you ask for? This is a lovely, busy and cozy Italian restaurant with very good food, and even better service. Make sure to get some wine (so that the waiter dotes on you/flirts with you to make sure you like it). Lots of very attractive couples in the room and apparently its a hot spot for famous people (though I didn't see any while there). Also not a bad place to meet the parents (this time it was my bf's turn)... Again, kind of expensive, but less so than Bouley or Daniel.
