This eclectic café is the perfect first-date restaurant. Built in the 1880s, the building holds a beautifully decorated café, lounge with live music and an art gallery, along with a terribly romantic garden patio. The food not only matches the elegance of the décor, it surpasses it. Order a Conversation Board, with samplings of different appetizers, and let the words flow. The grilled salmon might just bring you to tears. $12-$25. 738 York St., Newport, Ky., 859-261-9675, yorkstonline.com.
