PLAN DATE: TUES / SEPT. 17
Begin your picture-perfect date at Patisserie Fouet, a patisserie that combines the innovations of French pastry with the flavors of Japan. Try the tea for two, which includes finger sandwiches, macarons, cookies, tea cakes, and a choice of tea, coffee, or milk tea (or bubbly for an extra charge). You will also want to try almost everything from the menu, from the basil green apple, which includes a caramel and basil apple jelly center and white chocolate mousse in the shape of an actual apple, to the yuzu sugar sugar, which involves a pristine sugar shell waiting to be broken. This attention to detail will have you in awe of all of Japanese award-winning Chef Yoshie Shirakawa’s creations.
Then continue your day of looking at beautiful things by visiting the Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop in the Flatiron district. The Wonder Photo Shop is so much more than just a camera store, though they do have a lot of Fujifilm models (including their Instax series) and gear on sale. You can borrow some of their X Series digital cameras for free for the day, just bring a memory card. Then, once you’ve captured a beautiful day in the city, you can even print your photos back at the Wonder Photo Shop, making this a great one stop shop for getting a perfect date on film.
