Italian in NYC!

Hey everyone,
I am looking for a great Italian restaurant for a special birthday. Around the price range of Babbo. Wanna do something different from Babbo though since I have been there several times. I am a big fan of Al Di La, so something like that would be great. I hear good things about Convivio and Esca. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

What is as good as daniel...but not as stuffy?

Blue Hill is excellent and I went to Hearth a while back and don't remember being too impressed.

Thanks for all the responses! I ended up making a reservation at EMP because all the reviews are great, the tasting menu looks amazing, and looking at photo's of the place it looks a bit more relaxed that daniel or Le Bernardin.
Hopefully I made the right decision!

I am gonna go with the best food in a hip/relaxed atmosphere. No particular cuisine and no real parameters.

Yes, your both righ...but if you had to pick one top restaurant in Manhattan to take someone for a 30th birthday and that person wasn't really into frills where would you go? Last year we went to Blue Hill and it was wonderful!

Hi,
I am having trouble finding a restaurant that has the same quality food as gramercy tavern, daniel, or bouley also has a warm and somewhat hip atmosphere. Gramercy comes the closest out of those I think, but I find that places like EMP or Le Bernadin are a bit stuffy and cold. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great!
Thanks
