2nd Date -- any suggestions?

I'm looking for a semi-romantic spot to linger with excellent food and a fun/not overly serious atmosphere. Any suggestions? Should be downtown - West Village, East Village, Nolita, Soho, LES.

Thank you!

  1. Azul bistro is dark and cozy without being overly romantic.

    1. Las Ramblas would fit the bill, I think. The food is good (Spanish and Portuguese tapas), the atm. not overly serious (you're perched on stools), and it's romantic when it's not too, too crowded (teeny place). Salt is nice and dark, very warm, has great food (nouveau American), and you're sitting at tables. Most tables aren't too close together, but some are. There's a French place next to Blue Ribbon Bakery that'd be great, too, but I'm blanking on the name. Maybe another Hound can help me out....

      Speaking of BR Bakery--that might be a good place to go, too.
