Need First Date Location on UES, any cuisine!
Hi, I'm seeking a relatively quiet, nicely lighted 'first-date' restaurant of any cuisine (Italian, French, 'American', Greek, Spanish, or any kind of mediterranean, etc...) that has a reasonably good wine list. We both love a good red wine with our meal. This place shouldn't be too expensive, maybe no more than an average of $20 an entree. ANY help is greatly appreciated....
Uskudar (Turkish) is a tiny place - seats about 22 - sort of family cozy on 2nd Ave. about 74th. Frequented by neighborhood types. Low-key. Family-owned. Nice people. Right price range. You can try the Turkish wines to go with the food.

Canyon Road is a great date place. Good atmosphere, great drinks and quality food. I have never been disappointed and had been there on many dates before getting married last year. There margaritas are delicious, sometimes kind of powerful but a very large glass! I've tried many dishes and they all are flavorful and tasty and won't break the bank. Maya on 62nd & 1st Ave is also good but a little bit pricier. Both can be a little noisy if they are crowded.
York Grill..classy, nice atmosphere, excellent steak, nice wine list.. 1690 York Ave,
Btwn 88th & 89th St
fig n olive is a great spot. i recommend going. i had amazing home made raviolis. however it depends on what kind of first date you are looking for. this isn't a fun place. it is more of a quiet sexy yummy food spot. also i had reservations and still had to wait.
