I am going on a pseudo date dinner with a friend and had a few places in mind...hoping to get some help.
So first of all, Balthazar, my friend's not too acquainted with the restaurants in nyc, and thought this might be a good intro to nyc basics
Il buco--i've heard a lot about it, and would like to try the wine cellar room...however, i've also heard that the service is not up to par. is that true?
Gascogne--this is where I'm really leaning towards right now. A nice meal in the garden would be lovely. I'm just worried it might be too hot?
Peasant--I've also heard a lot of good things about this place--the food and the atmosphere.
So...what do you think?
or if there are other somewhat romantic...but not too expensive places you would like to recommend...I would appreciate any kind of help. Thanks!
