Need dinner recc. for 2nd date near 14th and 8th

Hey Guys,

I'm going on a second date. Need some place where we can talk that is vegetarian friendly and easy on my date's wallet. The date is tomorrow so it needs to be easy to get in around 6:30 ish.

      Ditto Crispo. You could also try Gascgone (sp?).

    2. I'll chime in w/Crispo. My picky vegetarian sister is even a fan.

      1. I had the most incredible dinner with a date out on the patio at Gascogne last week and can't recommend it highly enough.

        1. skip crispo...their pastas don't hold a candle to da andrea on hudson...less expensive too.

            We went to Da Andrea. We both loved it. My date was appreciative that I picked a place with good vegetarian options.

          2. If you like Mexican, El Rey Del Sol on 14th betw. 7th & 8th is a nice little date spot with good margaritas and veggie options.
