The wine bar of Le Bernardin, Aldo Sohm is a phenomenal place to meet a date for a drink. There are comfortable couches as well as tables. The space fills up so be sure to make a reservation. Prices vary depending on the caliber of wine, but it’s easy to spend a lot so be mindful what you order.
This is an elegant, semi casual place to meet someone you’re comfortable upping the date price point a bit without breaking the bank. It’s in midtown west, conveniently located near Broadway close enough to Columbus Circle. Aldo Sohn also has a light menu.
