PLAN DATE: FRI / AUG. 17
In need of a mini-escape out of New York but don’t have $800 laying around to go to Europe? Say no more. Bisou Bisou is a beautifully underrated gem in the heart of Fort Greene that will transport you to the golden-hued, cobblestone streets of somewhere foreign. And though they serve American comfort food (because we may want to be in Paris, but we’re still craving that Americanized pasta), the romantic playlists, cozy nooks, and thoughtful cocktails will all have you forgetting you’re not actually on a lovers vacation.
Post-candlelit meal, head to Petit Paulette to close out the night with one more drink (and several more bisous). It’s a brand new wine bar that nails the cozy atmosphere we’re all craving. They focus on organic wines and perfectly-executed charcuterie. Kiss kiss!
264 Carlton Avenue, Brooklyn
idk tip: Definitely order the “love boat of mussels” and the spring pea risotto — both are excellent.
136 Dekalb Avenue, Brooklyn
idk tip: They have several outdoor tables — if it’s a nice night, we recommend you share a bottle outside Fort Greene Park.
