      I realize you order at the counter at Bobo, but I find that place to be incredibly sweet and romantic. The people who work there are all super friendly too. Like they love their jobs.

      Good call on Sasha's too.

      How close? Do you have a car? What part of Wash U -- Danforth Campus? Med School? Etc.

          Since you have a car, distance isn't as difficult a criterion as "romantic" and "not terribly expensive" since I don't know what qualifies for each. I know as an undergraduate, my standard was somewhat different from what it is now.

          Here are some possiblities...

          More young and fun feeling:
          Taste, which is a small plate place in Central West End, that's got a nice feel and you can control pricing: http://tastebarstl.com/

          Brasserie by Niche, next to Taste in Central West End, that's got a lively and bright feeling but the food is a little more substantive: http://www.brasseriebyniche.com/

          Sen Thai, downtown and not fancy but a pleasant spot and budget conscious: http://www.senthaibistro.com/

          Rasoi, Central West End Indian in a pleasant room and not too expensive (quite near Taste and Brasserie if you go resie-free): http://www.rasoi.com/

          More established and likely expensive:
          Atlas Restaurant, standard Frenchy Continental and walking distance from Campus, nice room though not spectacularly "romantic": www.atlasrestaurantstl.com

          Five Bistro, which is in the Hill, a bit more expensive and creative: http://fivebistro.com/index.html

          Truffles, in Ladue and relatively close to campus, but more expensive and older feeling: http://www.trufflesinladue.com/food/

          Niche, one of the more expensive places in town but likely to have a nice meal and it's a great room: http://www.nichestlouis.com/home.html
