Taking Boss out to dinner

Thanks so much for all of the suggestions!! Someone also mentioned Bistronomic. Has anyone been? Feedback?

nsxtasy, I didn't mention Italian because he's going to be in Italy after he heads to France. So, he's going to get his fill of Italian :)

Taking Boss out to dinner

I'm taking my boss out to dinner this evening and I'm struggling to come up with a location. He loves Bistro 110, RL, Japonais, Bongo Room, Pops for Champagne and Sunda. This gives you an idea of his profile. We've been to Nomi, Sable, Spiaggia, Graham Elliot, Avec, Hub 51, Girl & Goat and Epic. I'm trying to find a good, reliable place to take him.

He's not into Chinese or Vietnamese food and probably no French recommendations as he's heading to France in a few days. Steak isn't big on his list either.

I've recently read about Sprout. Looks interesting but the decor looks very sterile. Tru and Alinea would be out of our price range.

Any recommendations on a few new places to try?
