  1. Aziza is one of my favorites

    1. I love Meze's on Chestnut. There is also Cafe Troya on Clement, which might not be as romantic (it is a little bigger) but the food is great.

        Yeah, Tryoa is fantastic Turkish food...but not too high on romance.

        1. re: meggie t

          I wouldn't think of Mezes as romantic, but the atmosphere's nicer than any other Middle-Eastern place I can think of other than Kokkari.

          Estia on Grant is somewhat similar.

          Maykadeh (Persian) in North Beach is nicer than either.

          Anybody been to Newroz recently?

          1. re: meggie t

            I actually found Troya to be romantic: nice lighting, candlelight, exotic food. Plus they have live tango music on Tuesdays, 7-9.

          2. I agree that Meze's isn't that romantic, but, as you stated, better than most in SF besides Kokkari.

            1. Frascati is great and a great date restaurant.

              1. I've heard paul k is nice.

                  It is nice. More romantic than Mezes.

                2. Aziza is the most romantic, I think... And the food is great!

                    Aziza's romantic and makes the best Moroccan food around.

                    I figured from the original post that gravity was looking for Greek / Middle Eastern.
