Brewing beer, curing meat, or making cheese?

Something like Apizz, but...

Looking for a new (to me) place for a first date on the LES or in the EV.

I really liked Apizz, Lavagna, Peasant, Cacio de Pepe, etc. but would like to try something new.

My date doesn't eat a lot of meat and I'd prefer someplace that accepts credit cards (rules out Perbacco and Assenzio).

Thinking possibly The Orchard, Barbone, IL Bagatto, Little Giant, Lupa???

    Lupa is fabulous and remains one of my favorite Italian places in town ('course I love all things Batali) - but it's a tough get for a reservation - so call early and often. I'm a big fan of Il Buco on Bond Street and think it a great first date place . And, I certainly don't think you can go wrong at The Orchard. the flatbreads are very good.

      The Orchard is good, as is Hearth.
