Taking my girlfriend for our first Valentine's Day dinner together this weekend and I really want to make it memorable - food, atmosphere, the whole thing.
But I'm not looking for someplace extravagant (e.g. Daniel, Danube). One reason is practical - I simply don't have the bucks. But also, an opulent place isn't really our style, I think we'd just feel uncomfortable there.
So what are some of the really great, romantic places in Manhattan, but great and romantic in a subtle, low-key way? A place where the entrees don't cost more than $20-25 pp - the only caveat is that my girlfriend is a vegetarian.
Thanks in advance for any help!
