PLAN DATE: TUES / OCT. 16
Tonight, the two of you will go from old-school to New Age, starting with Bamonte’s. Opening up all the way back in the early 1900s, this Italian trattoria is all about its classic atmosphere (seriously, it looks as though the decor hasn’t been touched since it opened). That said, if history isn’t your thing, then you’ll no doubt be swept off your feet by their perfected red sauce varieties, in classic dishes like [insert protein here] parm and crab linguini. If the Corleone’s had a favorite spot in Brooklyn, this was no doubt it.
Afterwards, fast-forward to some trendier vibes at The Breakers. This bar is all about the neon, with purples, blues, and yellows lining the walls, doorways, and trim (so, of course, we love it); and even outside of the illumination, this place is fluent in popping colors. The Breakers has a kind of New Age, beachy west coast aesthetic, with skateboards lining the weathered pink plaster walls and an interior that spills out to a massive patio. Just be sure to do their love of color proud and order the rose cosmo or a ginger Mai Tai.
