Hi Everyone.

I'm travelling to New York in April. It's my partners 40th birthday whilst we are there. I want to plan a special day out for his birthday. Could anyone please recommend any special places to go and restaurants?

Many thanks

What are your interests? What's your budget?

In any case NYC is covered in incredible detail on many travel and tourism websites as well as countless food/music/art/entertainment/etc. blogs. Google is your friend.

Have fun.

Definitely hit the High Line. Check the New York guide or read Tracey G's foodie post on New York: It is a long post but packed full of interesting local haunts.

Good luck!

Posted this previously, but I'll do it again.

Suggest you check out these:

Also, if you are looking for a place with the best views as well as great food, I'd recommend you travel across to New Jersey and go to the Charthouse Restaurant in Weehawken, and ask for a table by the window. There you will get the best possible view of Manhattan possible. I've eaten there myself on multiple occasions.

Here's a link to a picture taken in the restaurant:

Also, you can get there by going across on the ferry, but the restaurant is about 3/4 mile south of the ferry building, so either get a taxi on the other side or do this on a warm day, when the walk is a pleasant one.

Here's a picture of what it looks like if you go during the day.
