    "Romantic" can mean different things to different people; therefore, it would be helpful if you would describe the kind of atmospherics you're looking for. And when it comes to "won't break the bank," that depends on whose bank account we're talking about. So, please give us a per person budget, and tell us if that figure includes alcoholic beverages, tax & tip. With this information, Hounds will be better able to make appropriate suggestions.

        I would recommend River Cafe in Brooklyn.

          What is Erminia like? I posted asking about it a few weeks ago.

            Vice Versa.
            Romantic mixed with delicious food.
            Google the menu.

                We love Del Posto. It is a beautiful spot with wonderful food. The tables are set far apart and the live piano player makes it very romantic. We are going there tomorrow night to celebrate our 49th anniversary.

                Another Bastianich success.

              I am going there tomorrow night and I always have a great meal.
              (great for a special occasion)
              Great value for the $$. The service is fabulous. They are very attentive without being annoying. The food is "last meal" good.
