PLAN DATE: WEDS / FEB. 27
For dinner tonight, you’ll be trying 1803 NYC, a New Orleans-inspired restaurant in the heart of Tribeca. The spot is the result of the partnership between Chef Rafi Hasid, owner of Brooklyn’s celebrated restaurant Miriam, and Tal Lavi of Amsterdam Ale House. Fried green tomatoes, codfish, jambalaya, crawdaddies, and grilled oysters are all on the menu, which, in true Louisiana style, you can wash down with a sazerac or an Abita beer.
Afterward, head over to Patriot Saloon. Known for being one of the best 50 dive bars in the city according to NY Mag, get ready to embrace everything honky-tonk. With only female bartenders, an impressive collection of “lost” bras, and an unabashed “breast-forward” outlook, this spot promises to be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
