I'm looking to take my boyfriend out for his birthday this Tuesday evening and looking for suggestions. The thing is . . . I'm pretty . . . broke . . . He's broke, too, and knows I am so he's not expecting much but I was hoping to find some place that we've never been that has amazing food with an inexpensive price tag.
Unlike me, he likes very simple food and prefers Italian. Doesn't need to be fancy or romantic and we definitely don't want to dress up.
Basically "foodwise" a place like John's would be perfect . . . but I don't want that "old school" atmosphere.
He lives in Williamsburg and I live in Astoria, so any place in Manhanttan, Brooklyn or Queens is great.
Right now, the best choice I've come up with is Veloce Pizzeria. Fairly cheap, great food and a fun atmosphere.
Can you suggest anything else along those lines?
