Last min. dinner date in Midtown! Where to go!?

mnh2007 | May 22, 2008 10:02 AM

I just ran into an old college friend in midtown, where we both work, and we made plans for dinner after work tonight. I'm hoping this will turn into more of a first date -- I've always had a bit of a crush on him. Now I have to pick the place! I don't want it to be obviously romantic, but cozy and dim are a must (and more of a "soul" vibe than "French"). A lounge atmosphere where you can go from drinks to food, to drinks again. Hidden gem would be nice. Ideally close to midtown since he lives in Harlem and I'm in Brooklyn. Any suggestions? I'm so nervous/excited about tonight that it's prompted me to make my first post :)
