Hi, I'm looking for a restaurant that is special enough and upscale enough for a special occasion, one with unique cuisine. Preferably a place with an outdoor area, for a nice spring weekend dinner. Basically a place that might convince someone to fall in love with me but that wouldn't beat them over the head about it.
I was considering The Grocery on Smith Street or Aesop's Tables in Staten Island. Anyone have feedback on those places, or other suggestions?
