Birthday - Romantic downtown il Buco or Perilla

NYEatenAtty | Oct 25, 2012 07:17 AM

Hi All,

I am looking for a cozy, intimate place for a birthday dinner for 2. I want good to great food, and the opportunity to have good conversation (i.e. not too loud).

As of now, I have a table at il Buco, but was thinking of switching to Perilla.

I have been to il Buco many times (including 2 nights ago) so know what I am getting, and it would be perfect. I have never been to Perilla. Is it cozy/intimate? Romantic? Any recs on the food?

Thoughts are greatly appreciated.
