yes, i too was taken on a second date here. i was quite impressed. very warm, cozy place. the short ribs were flavorful, moist, i could have used a bit more 'juice.' the appetizer of polenta and mushrooms was amazing. my date chose one of the fish dishes, very good. no dessert. downstairs, the waitress explained, was more casual dining and in the lower lever were chefs tables.

This is probably the best date restaurant in Manhattan hands down. The place is intimate and offers a great environment to actually have a quiet conversation with your date. Food wise this place does a good job with a limited menu. I highly suggest the mac and cheese. Service was fantastic our waiter was friendly and extremely attentive.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
