SO, very hot date coming up this Friday. Drinks before dinner at Four Seasons Restaurant (at their beautiful bar next to the Grill Room). Then dinner at the counter of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. Then after - want/need a really sexy, dark bar for a round of drinks and intimate conversation into the wee hours. As long as it's in Manhattan, location doesn't matter, but would probably prefer downtown-ish, all other things being equal. Somewhere with terrific cocktails and/or wine list, and VERY conducive to intimate discussion and getting close! :-) In the old days (five years ago), the sort of place I'd be describing would be Temple Bar on Lafayette. But if there are other or better suggestions, would LOVE to hear yours!
