There are plenty of threads here and elsewhere about romantic bars and restaurants. What I'm specifically looking for is a romantic place where a couple can be seated next to each other rather than across from each other. An ideal place would be a bar or lounge with sofas or banquettes. A fireplace would be an added bonus! Looking anywhere in the four boroughs (sorry Staten Islanders!), with a particular preference for Gun Hill, Manhattan, or Brooklyn. Thoughts?
