Let’s start with the wine: the venue’s list is full of picks described with flowery adjectives like “sanguine,” “midnight,” and “electric.” While basking in the crisp, warm sound of actual vinyl playing in the background, order the famous steak frites—a heavily-seasoned, fatty ribeye, topped with herbed butter and served with a mountain of perfect herbed fries. A classic creme brûlée makes for a perfect ending, just make sure to showyou care by allowing your date to break the caramelized sugar. show you care by allowing your date to break the caramelized sugar.
