By: Lauren Herde

Now that summer’s over, we figured you’ll need a pick me up before the cool weather really sets in. Kick off this fall season by bringing your dog along for a few dates. Get the leash and treats ready because we have 8 dates for you, your partner and your dog to enjoy!

Couples with Dogs: Dates in the Fall

Boris and Borton
195 Avenue A, Manhattan

Take a seat at Boris and Borton, a dog-friendly coffee shop serving specialty lattes, pastries, cheese plates and a beautiful view of your own dog sitting next to you! This shop was NYC’s first dog-friendly cafe and provides a comfortable setting to chill out with your pup. To top it off, they have a small shop that sells dog clothes and treats for you to take home.

Barking Dog
1678 Third Avenue, Manhattan

Barking Dog is a dog-themed restaurant welcoming all canine-families for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even Sunday brunch. Come for the cafe-style food, but stay for the doggy fountain located in the outdoor seating area. Your dog can play and make friends while you dig in. Even if your dog barks, you know you’re in good company with the rest of the crowd. Heads up: If you go for their famous Sunday brunch, try to get there early as the line usually wraps around the block.

William Secord Gallery
29 West 15th Street 4th floor, Manhattan

We’ll assume if you own a dog, you’re a dog person. That being said, let’s take your love for dogs to to the next level at the William Secord Gallery. This art gallery showcases a ton of dog paintings, sculptures, and books. After staring at a bunch of dog art, you might be interested in taking home your own painting. Lucky enough, this gallery commissions custom dog portraits so you can have one of your own! Now that’s some art your pup will have to appreciate.

The Wilson NYC
132 West 27th Street, Manhattan

Start your night out with dinner at The Wilson NYC, a New-American restaurant with an upscale vibe. What makes this place extra special is that they have an actual menu for dogs. If your pet has been extra good lately, consider ordering the grilled rib eye steak or the pan roasted salmon. For you and your significant other, we recommend unique plates like the blue crab carbonara or the almond ricotta ravioli. Regardless of the fall weather approaching, you can sit outside in their enclosed heated patio.

Sure, we love Central Park but the change of season calls for a change in parks! Fort Tryon Park is an 8-mile long park with scenic views of the Hudson River and a great spot to soak in the upcoming Fall foliage. Plus, this park has the largest dog run in Manhattan, volleyball courts, ping pong tables and a gazebo to hang out in.

Cheers to local craft beer! Spend the afternoon (or night) at Brooklyn Brewery. Grab a table in the tasting room and check out their list of beers, ciders, and wines on tap. They offer a selection of rotating snacks as well. Note: if you’re interested in a brewery tour, you’d sadly have to leave your dog at home.
