They say you can find anything in New York....
I'm looking for a romantic restaurant for dinner w/my BF in NYC. Moderate prices are best (under $20ish per entree, the more reasonable the better). I'd like the whole meal (entrees, appetizers, bottle of wine) to cost under $100. $65 would be a lot better.
Somewhere that is private, ambient, excellent service, delicious food. It does not have to be 'fancy'.
I don't really care about the type of cuisine. We like good food, and well-balanced meals. Dietary restrictions: tomato, shrimp. I am less interested in oriental.
I really just want to find a 'hidden gem' to eat at (yeah if you post it here it won't be so hidden anymore). We're in the town on business. I've had unlucky experiences in the past by picking things that 'look nice' and YELP is overwhelming because I don't know where to start.
Please help! What's your favorite place to take your honey for a special (but not too expensive) meal?
We're staying in the Fashion District. I don't mind taking a cab.
