Trendy & Romantic?!

Thank you everyone!! I chose Peasant for an early dinner on Sunday...and then we're hitting The Red Cat later that night. I'm thinking it's a good mix. I REALLY appreciate all the suggestions. I'm looking forward to Peasant, especially with all the great reviews on it.
Happy Memorial Day!

We went to the Little Owl on our last trip and that was great! I had forgotten the name of the restaurant... :)

I figured most places would be gay-friendly...but just wanted to check. ;)

Trendy & Romantic?!

Hi everyone! This is my first post and I'm hopeful you can help. I'm coming to NYC over Memorial Day weekend and I'm looking for a nice restaurant for my date and me. Here's what I'm looking for:

I'm a basic foodie. I do like a sit-down meal at dinnertime, but I don't need all the fanciness. I love great food and I love it even more when I get a great deal on it!! I am more the all-american food type...although I love old-world style Italian as well (you know...Lots of Red Sauce on the Chicken Parm type...). I have been to many French Restaurants and I'm not the biggest fan. Thing is, it seems most of the ROMANTIC, QUIET, NICE places I'm finding are all French cuisine. He IS a big fan of French...so maybe a mix between easy American styled food and some French flair thrown in?! ;)

So, I'm looking for TRADITIONAL AMERICAN/ITALIAN food, TRENDY LOOKING ENVIRONMENT, ROMANTIC, somewhat QUIET (I like to hear my date speak without yelling), NOT A CHAIN RESTAURANT, and a GREAT BAR for varied drinks (wine, mixed, liquors, etc.)

I'm hoping I can find great food without having to hit some Irish Pub. Love the food, not the environment! :) Looking only in Manhattan...not the boroughs. A gay-friendly restaurant would be great as well...although not necessary. Nice to be amongst similar people is all. :)

Thank you everyone!
