Romantic dinner with French BF

pnoeric | Apr 1, 2007 10:56 AM

Hi, I'm trying to figure out a new place to take my French boyfriend for a nice romantic dinner tomorrow night... I'm looking for a restaurant with a great French wine selection. We've been to The Little Door, which he liked a lot; I love the ambiance and want something similarly cozy.

Right now I'm thinking about AOC or Lucques (I've been to neither). I've been reading the reviews here on Chowhound and they both sound like terrific food and wine, if a little pricey for what you get. (I'm comfortable with spending around $150 for the two of us, though, so I know what I'm in for.) The BF is from southern France, tho, so the Mediterranean influences at AOC might be just th thing for him.

Any suggestions about one over the other? Or anyplace else we might want to try? (I was toying with Jar but I don't know their wine selection, and it feels more like a place to take a group of friends or a celebration dinner than a romantic meal.)

thank you,
