Casual, romantic

  • k

Any recs? Does not have to be new--an old favorite? Cozy neighborhood joints? Prefer seafood and seasonal menu. Also love Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, Mexican. I love French alas, hubby does not. No Italian restaurants.

Any neighborhood in Manhattan, but prefer to stay away from midtown and anything too trendy or a place with a scene.

Thanks!

  1. What are you thinking in terms of price? I find that seafood tends to be more expensive. Same for seasonal if you want lots of local/organic/etc ingredients. Is having to wait for a table acceptable?

      I don't mind waiting for a table. Price--$25-35 for main course...?

    2. Apizz. Raoul's? Le Gigot. Sort of all over the place cuisine wise, but I find all 3 romantic, good food, reasonably priced. Raoul's highest priced of them all.

        Raoul's and Le Gigot may not be in OP's preference, given mention of hubby's non-preference of French.
        Also, Apizz won't work ... as per "No Italian restaurants" condition by OP.

      2. Try Recette...the seafood is great and the menu is very seasonal.

        1. it was suggested we try Jubilee --its french,very nice and not real expensive

          1. if you like viennese food i think cafe sabarsky is nice, casual, and romantic. be sure to check their hours though because sometimes they close early.
