Looking for romantic-ish restaurant for our anniversary dinner. Have enjoyed Red Cat, Harrison, Little Owl, Blue Hill in past. Looked at Perilla, but it's really too adventurous for my husband. Prefer warm, smallish, cozy atmosphere to fancy or chic (not EMP, Daniel, Spice Market).
Peasant (was there years ago when new, but can't read the Italian menu)
Il Buco (recent reviews here say no...)
Apizz (is it too much of a scene? or too noisy?)
I Coppi (have been once before, liked the atmosphere, thought it good, but not amazing)
Commerce (never been)
Cookshop (never been)
Looked at Scarpetta, but can't get reservation on the date we want.
Open to suggestions in Manhattan.
