How to impress a southern woman? Help me chowhounds!

Greg Matthews | Oct 12, 2006 01:06 PM

Visiting NYC this weekend to meet for a first date of sorts with a lovely young woman who is originally from the South, and a relative newcomer to Manhattan.

What can chowhounds recommend in the Union Square neighborhood for lunch and/or dinner that is bound to impress?

Some place, a true chowhound place, that will make her wonder..."How did HE, who doesn't even live here, know about this great place in my neighborhood that my so-called friends have never even suggested?"

It'll be our little secret. ;)

I throw the southern in for reference merely - any cuisine will do. I say Union Ssquare, but I would love to hear of any gems here, in greater lower Manhattan or in Brooklyn/Queens neighborhoods bordering the East River, for future reference.

Thank you in advance.
