First Date on UWS
Stuggling with this. Sat night first date on UWS. Want a place with a bar and tables to sit down afterwards if it goes well. Also want avg or lower noise level and moderate pricing (doesn't have to be inexpensive but don't want expensive either). Have been to Arte (and may end up back there) but tends to be noisy. Reviews show Cava as noisy. Cesca too expensive. Fish Tag just doesn't seem to have first date vibe. Spiga? Tangled Vine? Tolani? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
I am giggling because just last week i was on a first date on uws....
We went to bin 71, smaller place that feels intimate with nice selection and a few outdoor tables, nibbles not real food.
Wine and roses would also be a good pick- the food is more significant than nibbles but still has great glasses selection and atmosphere.
And both are close enough for a romantic walk to "see the fountain lit up at night by lincoln center".....;) hahahaha, it worked on me!!
Cotta has a nice bar and separate seating area. Food is better than average.
Casa Pomona, the place that opened and then immediately closed due to flooding, has now reopened and looks promising. Haven't been yet, but I'm planning to try it.
I hate not being able to recommend Corvo Bianco. The bar would be perfect for a first date, but I've been disappointed with the food.
