Sexiest/Most Romantic Restaurants? Think Outside the One-If-By-Land Box

Josh | Jan 19, 2004 12:07 PM

Valentine's is on the way, and I'm looking to find the best romantic restaurants in New York -- both Manhattan and the boroughs, especially Brooklyn.

Now, before you start replying, I'm not looking to hear "One If By Land" 30 times. My idea of romance does not involve overwrought proposals, big diamonds and trips to resorts in the Bahamas. I'm thinking more along the lines of a restaurant for people who think trekking together in the Himalayas is romantic, or finding themselves in a hookah bar in Bombay, or discovering a dimly lit, rustic tea-house in an unassuming Seoul basement. (This is not to rule out French or Continental, by the way -- just to rule out dull.)

Some romantic spots I can think of are the old Blah Blah (before it went lounge) and Khyber Pass on St. Mark's Place, especially those window seats. That should give you an idea of what I'm thinking of.
