Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick love these West Village date night spots

They're one of New York's most iconic couples -- and in the entertainment industry, one of the most enduring.

Matthew Broderick, 54, and Sarah Jessica Parker, 51, will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in May next year, and we got to thinking about what this couple does to make it seem so effortless.

Date nights are important, Broderick told us while discussing his marriage with the "Sex and the City" star. For these two, that means food.

"We don't really like to walk more than a block," he said, when it come to picking a restaurant. With that in mind, it's a good thing they live in such a hot spot for foodies: the West Village.

Here are some of the places that "The Producers" actor said he and SJP love.
