If a romantic dinner means holding hands at the table and gazing wordlessly into each other's eyes, then this French bistro's dim, intimate dining room is the perfect place. If you plan to read each other poetry or open up about your sexual fantasies, maybe just stay home. See, this handsome boîte foments its intimate quality by shoving a lot of tables into a petite space. Even the octogenarian lovebirds sitting at the next two-top don't have to turn up their hearing aids to transcribe your conversation. Still, for a simple yet gloriously erotic meal à deux (the menu runs heavy on reputed aphrodisiacs), there's nothing like the combination of French cooking (especially chef Philip Quillec's), French music, discreet lighting and bombe au chocolat.
