Mobile NYC - birthday

Hiya guys
Two questions really.
We go NYC for 5 days this Oct, & my daughter will be turning 16 one second day.

1) is NYC good for coupons (food) and if so I'll start signing up

2) where would you recommend for a nice sit down restaurant meal? Happy to pay a few hundred dollars for 4 of us but we don't eat super fancy la Dee da fine Dining stuff.

Thanks

We enjoyed Ellens - the entertainment is great but personally I wouldnt choose it for a special birthday meal. IMO the food is more diner than nice restaurant standard and you cant pre-book a table so nearly always have to queue to get in.

For a special meal we enjoyed the Boathouse in Central Park. We ate here following DSs wedding. The food and atmosphere were lovely and the views over the lake and the park amazing.

The view at the top of the Marriott marquis on times square, is a revoling restaurant with spectacular views across manhatten. it has a set menu which is pretty decent and not as expensive as you think. they also do brunch on some days as well.
we went for our Christmas dinner in 2014 , amazing!

Ellen's is good for entertainment but the food is no more than average really. It's not bad, but it's not amazing. For a young girl it's probably quite a good choice.

Some of our favourites:

For (fairly pricey) steak - Lincoln Square Steak.
For slightly cheaper but still quite pricey, Landmarc in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.
