Best Romantic Dinner in East Village?

Hi. I want to treat my boyfriend to a special romantic and fun dinner, but would like to stay in the East Village, maybe Lower East side. Any recommendations?

  1. My boyfriend and I went on our first date to Lucien, a French bistro on 1st Ave (and close to 1st St) and I thought it was very romantic...busy and bustling, but romantic.

    1. If your idea of romantic is dimly lit and cozy (or slightly cramped), a lot of restaurants in the area will fit the bill. In E Vill: Barbone, Cacio e Pepe, Degustation. In LES: Azul Bistro, The Orchard, Apizz, Tides.
