For me, first dates are a tricky thing. I don’t want to go overboard and spend a bunch of money unless I’m pretty sure we are going to hit it off. I don’t want somewhere that is so loud and distracting that we can’t get to know each other. Then there’s the food. A sense of adventure, especially in all things food, is important to me, but I don’t want to scare my date away. Offal is probably not the best choice. Hmm… something approachable yet interesting. Clearly everyone has their own ideas here, as no single restaurant had a huge majority. However, I think it is a pretty good list to start with.

Andina? Paley’s Place? Some of you are willing to throw caution to the wind and spend some money! I’m available, I’m available! Just sayin’
Of this list, Toro Bravo, Biwa, Andina, Ned Ludd – all are places that I would strongly consider. You might also want to read “The Best Restaurant for a Quiet Conversation“.
