Restaurant suggestions for a first date around or near 37th and 8th ave.

Hey guys. Looking for any good restaurant suggestions to take a first date around or near 37th and 8th ave for thursday. Not looking for anything extremely classy but nice. Where a nice shirt, jeans, and shoes would be acceptable. Any suggestions or advice would be great. Thanks.

  1. That is a tough neighborhood for a date-y place. Tir Na Nog (33rd & 8th), an upscale Irish pub, has good food, and it's an attractive space. But in the early evening it is lousy with commuters and quite loud.

    1. I would suggest Il Punto, on the corner of 9th Av. & 38th St.

        How about Seven?

        There is also a new Latin American place called Crudo in the area, though I've never been.

      2. Thanks guys. Both of those places look pretty good. How about this place called Havnna? Looks pretty good. Anyone ever been>

        1. Esca - best seafood place in that 'hood
