  1. Yikes. That's about the least romantic 15 block area in the city. I can't think of a single good place for breakfast in that area much less a romantic place. I work right on 8th between 33rd & 34th, and finding lunch spots is nigh near impossible. Does it have to be in that area? Maybe someone else can come up with something.

    1. Rob,
      I used to work in the area and my advice: get on the subway located steps from your hotel. You won't find ANYTHING even remotely romantic. The A/C/E train will take you to Chelsea and the West Village, which are just minutes away by train and will suit your needs better.
