First date spots...

@simon: "Now, what about fun, casual dive bar types of places?"

I love going to Marshall Stack on Allen & Rivington for first dates because it's a warm and approachable neighborhood bar that plays great music at a reasonable decibel so you can actually hear what your date is saying. The limited bar menu is always super tasty (love the duck club and tater tots) and a good reason to linger in case the date is going better than expected. I also like to think that the place leans towards the fun and mischievous side of romantic, but that might just be one too many arrogant bastards talking...
