First, money is not a concern, but that doesn't mean I'm only interested in the most expensive places.
I'm interested in some place kinda near Union Square ("kinda near" does not necessarilly mean only walking distance ... a relatively short cab ride is fine too). Some place that is fun and casual enough for a first date, but also some place that will impress more than a little.
Not looking for French cuisine or too fancy, but something more than burgers or sandwiches, etc.
And if it has a fun bar or one close by for drinks before hand, that would be great as well.
Thanks for any help you can offer. I will continue to browse as well, but thought I'd try a possible shortcut by starting this discussion.
