Iron Gate is known for fancy dinners, but you can use it for a casual night if you know how to hack it - and that's how we like to use this place. Ditch the $90 prix-fixe menu in the separate dining room and take advantage of the romantic vibes at the fire-pitted outdoor patio or bar area. Both are good settings for a second date, especially if you’re still doing the whole “just drinks and appetizers” thing because you’re not ready to shell out all of your hard-earned super PAC dollars on internet strangers.

Duke's Grocery

Duke’s Grocery is a low-key gastropub in a Dupont row house. The burger is rightly famous, but you won't be disappointed with anything on the menu.
