Spontaneous date nite spot in Manhattan/Bklyn?
Definitely La Sirene if you can get reservations there - might want to call ahead. It is sooo tiny, but I was there on Wednesday night and had a fantastic meal.
The goat cheese tart is just naughty, and the moules dijonais are to die for. I think you'll be pleased with anything there as long as you like French with a little Carribean flair.
It's BYOB, too.
Sorry, belatedly realized I should have done somthing separate on Brooklyn board. Aplogies to all!
Really, we are open to ANYTHING. We used to go out all the time pre-kids and now don't even have a want-to-try-it list. I guess I'd say nothing on the order of Per Se, something lively and new where we we have a chance of getting in without a two-hour wait. Past favorites have been Le Gigot, Blue Ribbon, Tabla. Thanks for any ideas.
