Even if you’ve never physically been to The Prince, you’ve definitely seen it before - it’s been on every TV show and movie ever. The whole place feels like the rich people floor on The Titanic, with a menu full of Korean staples that are actually pretty delicious. The cocktails aren’t great, but if you keep it simple or just stick to beer, you’ll be fine. For a fun and actually-different first date, consider this place.
