With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Voice reporter Shayna Rubin asked Noe Valleyans strolling near the farmers market on 24th Street:
What is the most romantic place in Noe Valley?
Cameron Campbell, Clipper Street: The French Tulip is the most romantic place in Noe Valley. It always leads to a romantic night with my wife, Anne.
Lisa Jaicks, Elizabeth Street: It is a tossup between Martha's Coffee and the farmers market. Martha's is one because my partner and I are always engaged in deep conversation there. The farmers market is the other because it's a sensual experience. There are lots of nice sounds, colors, smells, and everyone is close and warm.
John Peters, Church Street: Tamasei Sushi is the most romantic place in Noe Valley. It is cozy and so small that you can only go there with one person. My wife and I have always gone for a quiet dinner on a Friday.
Regina Faustine, Hoffman Street: Upper Douglass Park is the most r omantic place in Noe Valley.
It is wooded, there's a nice view, and it is secluded.
Amanda Meth, Church Street: St. Paul's Church is the most romantic place in Noe Valley. I have never been inside, but I love the classic architecture. I love buildings built centuries ago and that it is still preserved.
Psyche Philips, Vicksburg Street: The most romantic place in Noe Valley is that little bench made out of a tree stump on Sanchez and 21st streets. It's peaceful and it feels like it's not in the city.
Bryan Shiles, Elizabeth Street: Contigo is the most romantic place in Noe Valley because the food is sensual and the wine list is fabulous. It is warm, lively, and comfortable. When I have dinner with my wife, we like to go to places that are casual.
Steve March, Jersey Street: The most romantic place in Noe Valley is Upper Douglass Park-- through the fence. There is a great view of the city, and it is very quiet and nice.
Cary Rose, Chattanooga Street: I like to take a stroll to get gelato at Tuttimelon. It is a perfect night if you can have ice cream and romance.
Ryan Wiederkehr, Dolores Street: My back yard is the most romantic place in Noe Valley. There is a nice bench surrounded by lots of plants.
