Need an unusual dinner spot for April Fool's Day in NYC...

Asked by marauder76 (390 points ) March 26th, 2010

My friends and I have dinner once per month at various spots in NYC. Our next dinner is on April 1st, and we’d like to go somewhere a little bit unusual, offbeat, or silly in honor of the “holiday.” Looking for suggestions for theme restaurants, or maybe places with dinner and some kind of show, or anything else that might be different and fun. It would have to be in either midtown or downtown Manhattan. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Mama Leone’s. You’d be the only New Yorkers in the joint.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is a chain. People don’t dine out in Manhattan to eat in a chain restaurant.

There’s a Ninja restaurant I hear good things about. (Not the food, the theme)

@dpworkin But they do serve real dinosaur, right?

There’s so much BBQ sauce on it, who can tell?

Go to Ninja New York. Took my gf there for her birthday last year. It’s amazing. The place is in the basement of some office building and your thinking, what the hell did I get myself into here, but then you go down an elevator, the doors open and BAM! You’re in a Japanese village with huts, slow moving streams and a staff of waiters dressed like ninjas.

It’s a little pricey, but worth it for the experience.

You could try either Shopsin’s or Yonah Schimmel’s Kinsh Bakery. Either is probably more of a lunch place than dinner but each would give you a fun NY experience.
