Shinsen is a casual neighborhood Japanese restaurant with quality fish for pretty decent prices. They have a few sushi sets (the least expensive one is $29 for 10 pieces), as well as dishes like oyakodon (a chicken and rice bowl) and a spicy tuna tower. Whether you decide to come to this modern sushi space for a casual date or just to have a solo meal at the sushi bar, expect to sit near several people who are staying in the hotel next door.

Toriko is a yakitori spot in the West Village that serves omakase menus focused on excellent grilled chicken skewers.
A great East Village date night spot, especially when you get the adjacent cocktail lounge, Angel's Share, involved.
There are some incredible things to eat at Neta, but there are also some duds on the menu. It’s probably a much better experience if you have endless money to spend. Then again, so is everything.
