Highland Park is just beginning to explode with more high-end, date-night type spots, but Ba was one of the first. The adorable little French bistro (which is decorated more like a designer's bordello than an actual French bistro) has been serving moules frites, coq au vin and duck liver mousse on the corner of York and 51st since spring of 2012, and it's been doing a pretty good job of nailing the classics. The service can be a little spacy, and the food is more comforting than exciting, but it remains a favorite with the neighbors for a reason. It's dependable, good-looking and sincere. What more could you want from your date? 5
