mixing good food and live music - does it work?
I like Garage around Christopher and 7th. Because it's a pretty big place, I'm not sure if it's romantic enough for you. But the food and the music are both good, and the bar scene is pretty active. If I recall, there's a much smaller place around the corner just south of Garage. It has live music, I think it's Italian, and I can't recall the name...maybe someone here can help with that.
