Restaurant ideas nearby 34th St. AMC movie theater


I was wondering what are some pretty romantic or cute restaurants nearby the 34th St AMC Loews movie theater? After the movies, my date and I are thinking about heading off to a restaurant for Valentine's Day.

So far. All I have in mind is Pepe Giallo. A little walk but not so bad. Can anyone vouch for this place?

Alta looks cute but it's further down and I'm not sure if the food is good or not.

Also, we're not really willing to spend like $60 on prix frix's and all that.

We're willing to spend maybe $20-25 max on our plate.

Thanks!! :D

  1. if this is the theater on 8th Ave, i wouldn't call Pepe Giallo a "little walk". it's ten blocks and two avenues - in FEBRUARY! that whole area is a culinary wasteland. you can't pick a different theater? also, the idea of just "heading off" to a restaurant on Valentine's Day is dangerous business. you don't want to drag your date on a hike only to find out that every restaurant has a 40 minute wait and a fixed menu.
