fireplace & cozy, UES (bar w/food or restaurant)
looking for somewhere with a fireplace for a very cozy date tomorrow night on the UES. also looking for something fairly hip (to prevent me from getting homesick for downtown).
restaurant is probably best, but a bar is also acceptable.
I'm pretty sure Hacienda de Argentina on 75th has a fireplace.
Never eaten there, so I can't comment on the food.
I've only been once, and I may be hallucinating - but you could call Spigolo and see if they have one. Wonderful Italian food.
Uva is a wine bar/restaurant on 2nd Ave btwn 78th & 77th St. They have a fireplace but I have not been there when cold so not sure if it works or is just for show. I found the appetizers and food to be very good.
