Take a cutie with you to this sleek St. Pete restaurant, whose accomplished chef puts out a spectacular cream of crab soup, excellent steak au poivre and a memorable, molten Godiva chocolate cake. Throw down a few drinks and make goo-goo eyes amid florescent-white linen and oh-so-civilized chitchat. Order USDA Prime beef or exotic seafood; it's all tasty. OK, so it's expensive, but on the plus side, there's not a single fake golden cupid anywhere on the premises.
