Knickerbocker, Jane, Or Chinatown Brasserie Tonight!!!

emh237 Mar 22, 2007 08:09 AM

Date tonight and debating between these three restaurants. Looking for a place which would allow for easy conversation, great food, no rushed service, etc. I have been to Jane a long time ago and remember good things. I also enjoyed CB but went on an off time when the place was quiet and I have never been to Knickerbocker. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    unless Knickerbocker has changed format, they have live music, which might make for not so easy conversation...

      The time I went to Chinatown Brasserie (on a Sat night) it was definitely not quiet. Also wish I had night vision goggles, though I guess I'm just used to eating in fluorescently lit Chinese restaurants.

        Even on a slow night, Knickerbocker is one of the "din" venues, where you leave hoarse, and that's when the band isn't playing.

          Jane is a good place for a date

            Jane would be a great place. I had a fantastic meal when i went and an even better experience with their service! and they have great drinks
