First Date in East Village
Can anybody recommend someplace decent in the east village for a first date. Someplace more interesting and fun than romantic. Price: roughly $50 per person all included. Any cuisine. Reservations would be nice but not necessary as long as we can wait at the/a bar.
I like going on dates at Caracas. It's really chill atmosphere, affordable, and tasty. Weeknights waits are no problem, at most 15 minutes. The take-out restaurant and the -restaurant- are next to each other, go with the restaurant of course. Also, eat the arepas (Venezuelan). They're tasty Crispy-Crepe Pitas with your choice of well-made/healthy fillings. It's good to bring a first-date to a place that involves a learning experience, as you
both are learning about yourselves. =)
cheers and good luck
i think perbacco is a good date spot. small delicious shareable italian dishes. a great wine selection. cozy, with fantastic warm lighting. but still enough groups and other people around to not feel like you are trying toooo hard.
Cafe Orlin is always a fun, laid back and cheap place for a bite, it's on St. Marks and 2nd ave.
No shot you can get out of The Orchard for $50 per person all included. I love this place but the price point is not right for PSAWCE.
Avenue A sushi is a fun atmosphere and you can get drunk on Saki, that always makes the date more fun.
Il Baggatto between B&C has great food, the right price and a nice atmosphere as well.
Bourgeois Pig on 7th Street is excellent. Fun, small atmosphere, mostly fondue and cheese plate type stuff to eat and on Tuesdays it's half-price bottles of wine.
