PLEASE HELP!!!

Money is not an issue, but I also am unimpressed with guys that feel it is necessary to take a girl to a well-known top-of-the-line restaurant. I don't think Le Bec Fin would be appropirate for a number of reasons. I've heard great things about Vetri. And obviously, I would like somewhere where we can hear each other!! The ideal place would have a great ambiance, excellent food and top-notch service..

PLEASE HELP!!!

First time was just for drinks ... went to Lucky Strike... had drinks and bowled (i was terrible, which made her feel good that she only got a 37!)... then brunch at Jones on Sunday...

Thoughts?

PLEASE HELP!!!

I am taking out a girl for the third time that I feel strongly about and can definitely see a future with.. she lives in philadelphia and I'm from New York and don't know philly restaurants (aside from the main Steven Star ones).

I want to take her somewhere special, preferably somewhere that she most likely hasn't been. I know about 50 of these type of "in-the-know" spots in NY, but I'm lost when it comes to the city of brotherly love... you would be doing me a HUGE service by helping me with this cause... THANK YOU in advance!!

Best steakhouse...

Ben & Jack's is absolutely the place to go for an important business dinner. Former Luger's boys with amazing food, superior service, elegant ambiance and good location.

Charlie, Ben, Jack and Geoff are the most respectful Maitre'des I've ver dealt with.

Good Tribeca Dessert Place Open Late

Nobu and Nobu next door have an amazing desert called the Chocolate Bento Box. . . HIGHLY recommended. Also, Daniel Bouley's Bakery is open late. Enjoy!

Matzoh Bry in Midtown

I can confirm Cafe Edison DOES have it, and it IS very good. Additionally, the Matzoh Ball soup looked great as well, but I had enough trouble taking down the bry!

Thanks for all of your help.

The best sushi ?

If you are not into sauces and crazy renditions of various types of "typical" sushi dishes, I would recommend Sushi Yasuda. They only serve the most fresh and delicious fish and they keep it pure (they don't even have "spicy" sushi dishes)! For a little more adventureous sushi, try Sushi Seki. Good luck!
