I'm looking for a great, romantic restaurant to go to with my boyfriend this Friday night. It must be in the lower east side because we will be going to the Nuyorican Poetry cafe (near Ave. B and 3rd Street) after dinner around 9:30 pm (where I plan on proposing to him).
I don't really care about expense (although, if it happens to be great AND affordable, I certainly won't complain) :-)
I am particularly interested in great French restaurants (the one cuisine he has not experienced) but I am open to other styles of food. I am less interested in taking him to an Italian, Indian, or Mexican restaurant (but good Cuban, Thai, Vietnamese, Carribbean, etc are fare game)
