Wine bar for First date?

pancun187 Apr 13, 2008 11:53 PM

I need a cool wine bar for a low key first date. Hopefully a place that doesn't kill my wallet. I love italian food and was thinking about 'ino. Also I love Chinti and she loves german riesling

          'ino and 'inoteca are great. Gottino is also worth a try, and I've heard good things about Dell'anime (I tried to go last night but wait for 3 was over an hour).

            ino is too small and cramped for a 1st date.

            gottino is a great option...long bar...more of a small plates restaurant than bar but buy a bottle and and enjoy.

            my other pick is turks and frogs.

              Heard Pudding Stones in the UES is good, but haven't tried it yet.
