When it comes to intimate French dining, the Circle ups the romance level, brings the price point down a notch and presents a menu that’s solid if not particularly inspiring. This is fine dining with American ingredients, and while you may not be surprised by dishes such as trout with artichoke hearts or a squid-ink pasta (such things seem de rigueur of late), that doesn’t mean you won’t be delighted by them – the food is, simply, quite good. The service is generally even better, which adds to the appeal of using this spot for a date night.
