Looks like we don't patronize the same establishments. In addition to The Gibson and Jack Rose, I like The Passenger, Hogo (RIP), Tabard Inn (great for a first date), 2 Birds 1 Stone, Chez Billy, and Southern Efficiency. Last night I went to Second State, which is where The Mighty Pint used to be. Nice whiskey based cocktails, generous pours.I have a friend who loves The Sheppard. Is it a good place for a first date?
