My girlfriend and I are coming into the city from CT to see a Saturday matinee and get dinner. I've searched for hours to find the right place that is available or would fit the bill. My GF loves seafood while I can't stand it.
As of right now I have reservations at db Bistro Moderne and Scalini Fedeli. Would you classify db as a good place for an intimate but fun dinner? And on the other side, is Scalini Fedeli too bland/formal? We are in our late 20s so we want something that is fun and still fun. Price is not a huge object, but availability certainly is (about 3 weeks from now) if there is another recommendation. Do you think either of these two restaurants fit the bill and if so, would you recommend one over the other? I do like db's location better but that's not a huge issue.
Thanks so much!
