Romantic dinner, Midtown to Financial district
Now that Valentine's day is over, I am looking for place for a romantic anniversary dinner, anywhere in Manhattan south of Central Park.
Cuisine - Continental; Italian, Greek, Spanish, all OK. Seafood not required as a strong point. Indian, Burmese, Malayan, Indonesian also OK.
Korean, Japanese, Thai, Chinese not OK.
Dress code - someplace where a jacket and tie or suit is not required, but would not be out of place.
Price - $150 or so for two. EMP, The Modern, etc too upscale. Ambience and atmosphere are important, food should be good but need not be "best ever" or "fantastic."
Maybe it is the music on the website, but Molyvos seems to fit the bill. Any other suggestions?
Would not call Kefi romantic -- it's more on the loud and bright side. And it's also north of your target area.
Check out Devi -- very good, interesting Indian with a pretty romantic setting. I think they are still doing restaurant week in addition to their regular menu, but I think you could easily stay within your price range.
Alta also can be romatic if it's not too crowded.
