Hello everyone.
I would appreciate if you can recommend romantic place for proposal in NYC may be with some music, which could be around $70 per person.
I read previous chat but most of the recommended restaraunts are higher than that.
Thank you very much.

    Hey there. What kind of food are you looking for? Is that $70 with drinks, tax, and tip? Any neighborhood in particular?

      Thank you. Without tax and drinks; from Midtown down, anywhere.

        I know; i saw them before. Thank you. But all restaraunts mentioned there very expensive. So i was trying to find something less expensive.

        You might check out Water's Edge in Queens-You take a boat from 23rd? St. -View of skyline. Propose on the boat and celebrate in the rest.

          Very cool idea re: the boat.

          If you don't wanna take a boat, but be on a boat anyway (the restaurant's dining room is a converted boat, in the water on pilings) check out The Water Club. Every seat has a view of the water.

          I know I've mentioned this restaurant a couple of times recently but we just can't get enough of it.

          For what it's worth I would say propose earlier then celebrate at dinner. NYC restaurants are cramped and you never know who will be at the next table -- 80th birthday party, the 8 year old gourmet and his adoring parents, the fighting couple, etc.

          Knowing cuisine or your definition of "romantic" might help too. For example, I find Devi to be romantic with the lanterns and nooks and I love the Indian food there (and it could easily be in your price range) -- but you might be looking more for something that's just plain dark & cozy. Or, is there a special food-related memory you can re-create -- what was your first meal together, your first date, etc.?
