Going to be in your fine city for Valentine's Day with the husband. We are not fans of this ultimate amateur night, but would like to go out for a nice, non-prix-fixe dinner. Any suggestions for lower Manhattan establishments that treat this night as a regular night? No complimentary champagne is needed, no cigars or candy are necessary, and we'd prefer if there is no humping going on at neighboring tables.
We were dismayed to hear that Lavagna is prix fixe that night. Would've thought that was a good choice, but apparently they've succumbed to the VD.
Thanks in advance.
