So because you guys have been everywhere, and I'm new here (via new orleans-miami-nyc), I thought I'd ask:
Looking for a nice bar or restaurant-bar with a cozy fireplace to warm up in front of on a date w/ my girlfriend. bonus points for:
small plates menus
wine BTG, sake, or cool cocktails
laid back vibe...
basically, somewhere to relax post work with a quality quaff and MAYBE a bite or two, without going broke.
Heard good things re: bar- hayama, and i like the sawtelle izakaya vibe.
