I'm going out with a girl I really like this week and got conflicting advice from friends about the type of place to take her. Our first date was a nice lunch, but this is dinner and I don't want to go somewhere I went with my ex so I wanted to get some other opinions from people who know the restaurant scene better than I do. I'm in my early 20s and can pick up the check but think it might be a little strange (and above my budget) to go to Daniel. I normally go to inexpensive places in Chinatown or Spanish or Middle Eastern restaurants I've eaten at for years in Brooklyn but I'd like to take her somewhere that's not based around a gigantic portion of rice and beans. I guess that's not the best query, but I know she's not into very spicy food and I'd like to go somewhere that's intimate without being too romantic for a 2nd date. If you have any suggestions I'll be sure to check them out online and hopefully choose a good one for later this week. Thanks!
