Great date spots

Valentines Day approaches, and all across campus, thoughts turn to romance. What to do to show that special someone that he or she truly is special?

Sure, a dozen roses are a classic gesture. But a wonderful date is even nicer. So where to go? Luckily for our respondents, Philadelphia is chock-full of restaurants and clubs offering mood and food for just about every taste, and sure enough, just about every mood and food shows up in their answers, from the ne plus ultra luxury of Le Bec-Fin to the terminally hip Continental. (We hope Christina Kim has saved up for her date.) And for those not satisfied with just dinner, theres always coffee afterwards.

I would go to Mahogany because its a really cool cigar bar.

Marrakesh, because its very secluded and it feels like you entered a different country.

The Latest Dish is a really cool place; its off of South Street.

Deux Cheminees is this very nice French restaurant, but it can be a bit pricey.

I went to Astral Plane once. They have a good variety of food, so you can never go wrong.

The place to see and to be seen is Continental. If you go, dont forget to wear black!

A good place to go after dinner is Xando downtown. Its perfect for chatting.

Rouge has nice dim lights, so it has a real cozy feel, but it can get a little loud sometimes.
