Disney Legend: Howard Ashman

Twenty-five years ago, on September 29,1991, Beauty and the Beast premiered at the New York Film Festival, no small feat considering that the film was unfinished. Not only did that first audience forgive the footage for missing the Ink & Paint Department, but they applauded as loudly as they would have applauded at a Broadway show.

Dim lights, a water view, soft music, and starry sky go a long way to turn these quick service restaurants into romantic musts. Here are my picks for Quick Service favorites that can be big on romance.
