I am getting engaged in NYC this winter. I cant figure out where to take her after the proposal. I think it will just be for her and i. I want something romantic (but not cheezy and sappy), intimate (but dont mind full restaurant), lively, cozy, good wine and GOOD FOOD. We are staying in Midtown, and am looking in the Villages, Midtown, Chelsea, Soho, etc. Nothing to stifling like Per Se, Le Bernadine or something too fancy like that.
Here is what i have to far...
August - heard its good food, fireplace (good for winter), good wine, intimate in Soho.
Savoy - fireplace, good food.
Alta - we love tapas and i heard the food is great!
Please let me know what you think about these and other recommendations too! Thanks! :)
