If you’re looking for a low key but sexy date, try Ñ in SoHo. It’s all about focusing on the taste, which can bring you and your date into a whole other level of closeness. But be prepared to arrive early and stay late: this little hole in the wall fills to the brim by 8 p.m.
While the foliage watching will be less than ideal in a few weeks, right now the late fall flowers are beginning to bloom in all their bold brightness. Take your date to the New York Botanical Gardens with a thermos of hot chocolate and a few blankets for a walk through fragrent fields.
Casa, West Village
If feeling cozy is a top priority on a date, Casa may be your place. This authentic Brazilian eatery has that big-things-come-in-small-packages vibe going on. What it lacks in space, it makes up for in flavor (plus, an amazing wine selection). The food will keep you and your date talking, that is, if you can take a break from chowing down. Don’t miss out on the fruit-infused caipirinhas, Brazil’s national cocktail.
