PLAN DATE: MON / JUNE 24
If you’re craving Mediterranean food and looking for something casual that hits the spot, head on over to Bedouin Tent. While the place may look quite small at first glance, there’s a large dining area inside and an outdoor garden in the back. The ambiance all-around is welcoming and mood-setting with beautiful quilts draped on the walls and Middle Eastern music playing around you. Everything on the menu tastes fresh and authentic—the zaatar pizza and falafel are especially good. But what makes this service top-notch is the hot pita bread served straight from the oven. You’re going to want to ask for seconds.
Next stop: the Catskills! Well, not exactly, but you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported upstate once you enter cocktail bar Livingston Manor. All the drinks served here are finely crafted with care by bartenders who know their stuff. The cocktail and beer menus change seasonally, so there’s always something new to try. This is the kind of place you’ll want to positively review on Yelp, even if you’ve never taken to five-starsing a bar before. The drinks are pretty, the crowd is awesome, and the playlist is on-point. Need we say more?
