Looking for a romantic restaurant to go to on a first date. SM, BH,

        That's a rather high bar to set on a first date. Where are they gonna go for a second date? :-)

          Shit in that case the 2nd date would have to be Urasawa.

          for some reason, i don't think of shunji's as being a very romantic first date.

            You are right.

            I couldn't resist.

            It was Thanksgiving after all.

            Ok. I revoke my Shunjis rec even though it is beyond exceptional.

        3. Gyu-Kaku or Tokyo Kalbi? I think a more interactive experience would be good to break the ice. Gyu-Kaku also has s'mores to make at your table, which is fun on a date.

            Or Totaraku if you can get in. But then is there a hotel or motor hotel next door ??????

              Love AOC. I didn't realize they have an upstairs at the new location.

            2. Patio at Ivy. If its cold Cappo and get a room at Shutters.

                Room at Shutters?

                Man, and some thought Shunji was setting the bar high.

                What's the second date going to be? Meeting the parents?

                  Small table in the bar room at Dan Tanas is a fun first date.

                    But then you have to deal with the lovable though gregarious drunks bums.

                2. re: Thor123

                  Getting a room at the old Shutters ?????

                  It must be a pretty good first date.
