Who has good air conditioning in TriBeCa/SoHo/Village?

Some of these places have to be kidding me.

90 degrees with 85% humidity and they have crappy little wall unit AC units and people walking out the door mid-meal.

Where can I go to enjoy some cool air for my $15 glasses of wine and $100 meals?

    I often feel like the only guy who needs REAL AC. My go to first date spot in summer is usually Sevilla on Charles.It was so cold in there I could actually wear long pants and a nice shirt. I don't know what planet some restauranteurs were born on. I will not come to your venue and eat and drink unless it is at least close to the coolth of my apt. And you can hang meat in my apt. I can call ahead at Toscana on Carmine and they tell me whether the outside doors are closed and the AC cranked. If I see doors open to the outside when it's as hot as this week, I don't go in. I don't play even semi al Fresco during this season.Blue Ribbon Bakery? No. Westville? No, they keep the AC on FAN or something. There's a crappy lunch place on Greenwich Ave. up by 7th Ave. I go there STRICTLY because they're not too cheap to use their AC.
