Hot Date

food10011 Jul 9, 2007 08:13 AM

Looking for a great place to take a date (3rd date) this week. Want a sexy atmosphere..either SoHo, E/W village, or Chelsea. Any cuisine or price is fine, but most concerned with the setting. Thinking low lighting, not too crowded. Thoughts?

    I would suggest The Place (http://www.theplaceny.com) which is cozy, good, and really, the perfect date place. I went with a few couples and we were all talking about that. Check out the website because you can see pictures of the space. The area is cute too.

      if you two are getting along well and you both love food, i have to say that degustation was surprisingly a great date i had a few weeks back. you really sort of focus on the food and dont really notice the people around you.

        I also had a great date at Degustation not too long ago. Perfect for sharing each dish as it comes out, and the room is small enough that everything but the action in front of (and beside) you completely fades away.

            John's of 12th Street (off Second Avenue). Very 'Lady and the Tramp.'

              APIZZ is a good call -- i'd add FREEMANS in there as well.

                Apizz on LES is dark, small, romantic and great food too!
