I'm arranging a first date with someone.
Would much appreciate any suggestions, here's the paramaters:
--Needs to be convenient to the Staten Island Ferry on the Manhattan side, but I guess anywhere downtown will do.
--Needs to be big enough so there will be no problem finding seats on a Thursday night between 7pm and 8pm. Can't be too loud or busy, since we're going to be exchanging "get to know ya" chit chat.
If you really want to be near - as in walking distance to the Staten Island Ferry...there are a couple of spots located on Stone St. and Hanover Square that will suit (Adrienne, Ulysses, Cipriani's, a steakhouse which name I forget etc. You can just walk thru the street and peruse the menu and select a spot that will work for you guys - though Ulysses Bar will work just fine as well...most spots not full at this weather.
