Bucks County recommendations?

Hi, I'll be there next week. What can you recommend? Romantic would be nice. Not too pricey, or funky would also be great. Thanks!

      Sorry, New Hope, and on the other side, Lambertsville, Stockton.

        Hamilton's Grill (byob) in Lambertville is romantic, unique and funky plus the boathouse bar across the courtyard is totally cool and romantic. My wife and I have been going there since we met 13 years ago and it seems just as romantic of a night every time we go. I would stick with the grilled items as that is there specialty. When you walk into the place there is an open grill with a 6 seat counter where diners can watch the chef grilling their dinner. If you love food and cooking, there is not a better seat around. My wife and I always ask for seats at the counter and it never gets old.

    2. The Cafe in Rosemont, New Jersey is funky and romantic

      1. If above New Hope, you cannot do better than The Golden Pheasant. Still run by the daughter of Michael Faure (?) of Le Bec Fin fame. Fantastic French country based cuisine with touches of modern aesthetics. You will not be dissapointed.
        Wine menu iis excellent.
        And yes, if you are looking for the best of the best, they might be just a little below that. . This is much more rural and country. 1-1/2 hour to downtown Philly, 2+ hours to Manhattan. Rural NJ towns across the river. You will love it.
