Ah romance. Candlelight, quiet conversation, flirting. That is my definition, but, judging from the list, many people have other criteria. I looked all the way back to our list from 2006, which was Alba Osteria, Alberta Oyster, Andina, Fenouil, Carlyle, Paley’s, Giorgio’s, Beast, Aquariva and Metrovino. Interesting that three of the restaurants have gone out of business. Based soley on romance, I can’t argue any of the choices, though I’m not sure I would think of OX as romantic. It is nice to see restaurants like DOC, Ned Ludd and Noisette getting some reader love.
