As has been said multiple times above, ASP.NET MVC 4 with Razor syntax, and jQuery on the front end. ASP.NET MVC makes it easy for you to return HTML, JSON, XML, or whatever you like. When you add Razor to the mix you have a cleaner, less verbose syntax, and the ability to package controllers, models, views, partial views, and helper templates together into compiled libraries.

But I wanted to add that ASP.NET 4 runs on .NET 4.5, which has enhanced async capabilities with await and the now built-in Task library. This allows you to write non-blocking web applications ala node.js but without all the messy closures and with an actual honest-to-goodness concurrency library to make it work (I can't believe they don't have anything even remotely decent in the node.js official libs), and in a higher-performing language. That right there is a winner.

As for a database engine, the official way to go is Entity Framework 5, which is much improved in performance and coding support over EF4. But there are many different ORMs to choose from if Entity Framework is not your thing, which in good part due to ADO.NET, work with the major database platforms. Or you can go with raw SQL, or use a No-SQL database, or whatever suits you.
