BEST RESTAURANT FOR A FIRST DATE - 2001
Pigeonholes, snap dismissals, and the whiff of the uncool: These are all things you want to avoid on those all-important first dates. Thank heaven, then, for the new Warehouse District restaurant Sapor. The wide-ranging wine list lets you pick between showing off your internationalism and taking solace in the familiar. The stylish room with the flattering lighting makes everyone look good. And the menu? The menu is a first-date dream, running the gamut from sophisticated takes on all-American steak and potatoes, to Japanese-inflected salmon and wasabi cakes, to a vegetarian Indian feast on a plate. Frankly, if your new paramour can't find something to enjoy at Sapor, you don't want a second date.
