This place is a restaurant with a lounge off the side of it. I can't make any promises about the food, but I really love the lounge part. They have a great wine list and it's really the perfect, intimate-but-not-overbearing spot for a second date. You can hear the person you're with, sit as close as you'd like, and enjoy a little bit of candlelight without feeling like the place is trying too hard.
