i am going on a second date and wanted to find something up to the standard of public (we went there the first date). the food was awesome, but i liked the vibe there, as well as the design, from the bathrooms to the lighting. i have heard peasant is great - true? i am open to all suggestions - i would like to stay in the nolita/les/east village/tribeca area, if possible. any cuisine is ok, just some place hip where the food's delicious.
