Restaurants come and go all the time, but no matter what, there is always The Little Door. One of the most reliable date night spots in the entire city, this tiny brasserie in the heart of 3rd St. has an extremely romantic patio and a French-tinged menu that never disappoints. Whether it's the third date or you've been together for years, The Little Door always hits the mark.
