I'd like to hear suggestions on what restaurant I should take my date to this Saturday. I'd like to aim for the Nolita area. Any suggestions?

    InTent on Mott between Prince and Spring is a great date spot. I also really like Public on Elizabeth.

      I was thinking a little more intimate...
      I'm open for other areas as well.

        Bianca is a great date spot...
        And then you can grab drinks next door at Von, which is also date compatible.

          Bianca and Von are both slammed on Saturday and because Bianca doesn't take reservations this may not be the best suggestion.

          Temple Bar (Lafayette betw. Bleecker & Houston, west side) is not primarily a restaurant, but they do have food, including a weird guacomole layered with corn thing that, at the very least, is a conversation-starter. It's one of the date-iest places I know of.

            I like Temple Bar as a date place, but for drinks only. I wouldn't have dinner there.

            L'Asso is wonderful-- and you can totally judge your date's openness to novelty by the kind of pizza he/she orders!

              Barbossa is a nice little place with pretty good food and drinks. On Elizabeth, right down the street from Public. It's small but more lively and hip than romantic, maybe good for a first date?

                Nolita house is cute and cozy with good food, and great beer and wine specials.
