Grand Army is a well-designed bar in Boerum Hill where you can get some serious seafood. They have a very decent raw bar and also serve a full dinner and brunch menu (with a lot of fish and shellfish). Overall, this is a very nice place to grab a drink. There are plenty of seats at the bar, some tables for date night, and the cocktails are excellent.

Extra Virgin in the West Village is an excellent date spot and is as consistent as they come.
