Jake’s & Cooper’s Wine Bar (address and info) Jake’s is a nice change from the usual beer-centric haunts you’ll find on Main St, instead offering wines from around the world that pair perfectly with whatever you opt for on the menu, whether it’s Neapolitan pizza or tuna tartare.

Amada (address and info) It’s impossible not to have a great meal at this Jose Garces tapas joint, which lends itself to romance with dim lighting and small plates that will make your date think you like sharing, even though it means you won’t get as many crab-stuffed peppers or lamb meatballs as you want. The waterfront (address and info) When you’re at a loss for what to do after your romantic Old City meal, simply take your date’s hand and walk down to the water, where, depending on the time of year, there are dozens of activities thanks to the Spruce Street Harbor Park and Winterfest pop-ups.

XIX Nineteen looms over the city from 19 stories up, high in the upper quarters of the regal Hyatt at the Bellevue.

The American restaurant/bar/lounge is known for elegance, with a 19-foot-long chandelier and stained glass dome in the main dining room almost rivaling the main feature -- spectacular views. A modern menu gets international touches in dishes like Jerusalem artichoke puree, but you can keep it red-white-and-blue with Maine lobster or anything from the extensive raw bar. Townsend has some lovely French food and wine pairings like the blue foot mushroom escargots or the succulent sea scallops.

Dark wood-paneled walls and plush velvet booths create a warm, intimate interior that's perfect for a date night.

Take a seat at one of the candlelit tables and indulge in the always mysterious Charlie's Punch.

The Twisted Tail (address and info) Try top-notch cocktails paired with all the Southern comfort foods you need in your life.

Pro tip: cozy up to the dimly lit bar and enjoy live music during blues shows throughout the week.

Charlie certainly was a sinner, and a glutenous one at that.
