Crispo? (Baltimore 'Hound Needs Advice)
My wife and I will be spending a few days at the Jersey shore and before we head back to Maryland, we want to hit NYC for her birthday dinner. I currently have reservations for Crispo this Saturday night.
We are looking for a delicious and romantic (Italian) dinner, have I selected the right place?? We aren't looking to break the bank, but do want a nice atmostphere and memorable food.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.....
I think you've made a great choice. If you search Crispo on the boards here, you will find that most food recommendations are on point.
I think you've got the right place (and in fact, I'm headed there for dinner tonight). The food is terrific and I think the prices are moderate for the type of place it is. My bill is usually about $150-180, all in for 2 people. Definitely get the carbonara, and while I haven't had them yet the spaghetti and meatballs get rave reviews.
The atmosphere is informal and fun but it is on the louder side - personally I think it's a romantic place with the brick walls and low lighting but it's not romantic in the way that more formal, hushed places would feel. There is a garden in the back which is very pretty and a good setting for a celebratory dinner.
Just went there last week for the first time.
I agree with everyone else...good choice...u won't spend a fortune
