Vibe (and food) like the old Paris Commune?

Larry Brooks | Nov 15, 2007 04:31 PM

So I may be asking too much here, but here goes....
My wife and I will be coming into Manhattan from Brooklyn for a Saturday night date.
Since we don't have reservations, we won't even entertain the big players. We've always done well in the past with a no reservations dinner so what the heck.

I'm envisioning a place on par with the now closed Paris Commune in the West Village- romantic, cozy, adult and relatively easy to get a table on Saturday if you go early enough.
Anything in Chelsea? West Village or maybe even Tribeca?

Here are the requirements, in no particular order:

1. Romantic, candlelit and quiet. CAN'T be loud and full of drunk idiots, high volume music or -too- many fabulous people.
2. Should be downtown, below 23rd, East or West.
3. " New American" or " Classic" NY, Spanish - tapas or otherwise, perhaps bistro French
4. Obviously, we'd like great food, a decent wine list and a full bar. We'd spend $100 a person pre drinks.

Thanks so much hounders for whatever you can think of!
