One night in New Haven - best restaurant?

Anyone have recommendations for a special, romantic restaurant that has great food? Not limited by cuisine or price range, want something to remember.

    Don't know about romantic, but I think Ibiza has the best food in New Haven. It's spanish, very good, nice place.

      There are many choices: Union League Cafe,(French white table cloth etc. sometime over attentive service) Barcelona,(Spanish, tapas great wine list) Tre Scalini (Italian). There are many other choices for ethnic, steaks etc.

        I second Ibiza. It's my favorite New Haven Restaurant, too.

          The last time we went to Barcelona in New Haven we thought it wasn't as good as it had been. But before that we had very nice meals there, better than the SoNo and Fairfield Barcelona's. That being said, I personally think Ibiza is waaay better than Barcelona.

          Not a romantic or polished place, but a special one - Frank Pepe Pzza on Wooster St. Pizza like nowhere else.
