Best Restaurant for a First Date
Choosing a restaurant for a first date is tricky business. It's way too early in the game to pull out all the stops. The food should be excellent, but inexpensive; the atmosphere lively, but not too loud; the feel casual, but refined. Does such a place exist? It does. There's a reason 112 Eatery is booked solid every single weekend. With its cozy booths and low lights, a stellar menu from James Beard Award-winning chef Isaac Becker, and an elegant ambiance that never takes itself too seriously, 112 Eatery is fine dining incognito. Entrees range from the elaborate (roast chicken and lobster with hazelnut sabayon) to the comforting (tagliatelle with foie gras meatballs). For late-night lovebirds, a full menu is available until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Or why can't a romantic outing center on dessert? The butterscotch budino is a straight ticket to date number two.
