Romantic West Village Restaurant Recs?

sned | Mar 17, 201802:57 PM

Heading to New York for 20th anniversary. Looking for cozy & romantic restaurant recommendations in (or nearby) the West Village. Not looking for anything too formal. $100 pp max pricerange - we'll be eating out 5 days straight and don't want to blow the whole dining budget on a single meal....

We're open to pretty much any cuisine, provided there are lighter and less-spicy options on the menu. Ability to make reservations in advance is a huge plus. Extra credit for restaurants located on quaint, inviting streets - I'm hoping to enjoy some pre/post-dinner walks near the restaurants we chose.

Below are some of the places I'm considering - would love thoughts on these restaurants, as well as recommendations of any standouts not yet on my list.

Minetta Tavern
I Sodi (already have reservations here - is it worth the hype?)
Via Carota
Buvette (had solo lunch there last year and really enjoyed it)
The Little Owl

Many thanks in advance for the input!

Little Owl,
I Sodi,
Via Carota,
Minetta Tavern,
Amelie Wine Bar,
