        I thought Al Goldstein worked at the 2nd Ave. Deli, though? ;)

        I'm confused by the question. Sexy, as in sexy staff and clientele? Or sexy, as in a sensual, almost erotic dining experience? Or some combination?

        1. re: c212

          the experience - food, decor, drinks, etc. not the waitstaff.

          1. re: red

            ...and all those heaping mounds of wet, cured meat. Yum!

          2. re: c212

            Me too (confused). Does OP mean "restaurants that make you want to have sex"? Well, once at a far west side diner I actually heard people getting it on in the bathroom, but I wouldn't call the place "sexy."

            Oh, oh, oh, yes, yes ,yes! (Don't you remember that scene from when Harry Met Sally?)

              Yes -- I'll have what she's having!

          4. The Red Rooster on Avenue A near 13th Street I think. DEFINITELY, THE sexiest place in the city.

            1. The Strip House or Dylan Prime.Scores also serves food but I don't think that is what you are looking for.

              1. I'll take this one seriously. One candidate is Kittichai, Thai in Soho; others are Asiate in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel or Chez es Saada in the east village.

                    Kittichai has great atmosphere but the food is only so so.
