Midtown East- First date

Does anyone know where in Midtown East does one go for a first date. Think "meet for a drink" with possibility for a bite to eat if all goes well. Not too noisy please...

  1. We've been to Pampano, on 49th St., b/t 2nd & 3rd Avs., a couple of times, and I've noticed a nice bar area on the street level which doesn't appear to be noisy. Excellent mojitos, especially the one with passion fruit. If things go well, you can have something to eat on the lovely outdoor terrace on the second floor.

      I think Pampano is a great suggestion. If you like wine, another place to consider is Divine Bar on 51st between 2nd and 3rd. It's mainly a wine bar but they also serve great tapas. You can also order wine flights and sample a bunch of wines. Check it out:
