PLAN DATE: TUES / JAN. 29
Tonight, get fancy without the concurrent thinning of your wallets. Start at Bistro Les Amis—a cheerful, warm locale serving delicious French fare. Variety is the name of the game here, with a lot of steady favorites on the menu along with rotating daily specials. And, if the options are overwhelming, opt for their prix-fixe menu—at $35.95 it’s definitely worth it. Although keep in mind the prix-fixe is served only 5:30pm—7:30pm. With an ambiance that rivals the Parisian vibes, food that keeps you coming back for more, and service that truly befits the name of the restaurant, you’re sure to enjoy everything about your dinner tonight.
Afterward, keep with classy—head to SoHo Cigar Bar. This spot is the successor to New York’s (former) oldest operating cigar lounge, Circa Tabac. With old-school, art deco decor and a full bar with a brilliantly gilded facade, this spot is sure to become a fav. While the decor is old-school, the spot reconciles the old with the new featuring more modern classics—think The Beatles. Add to this their incredible menu featuring a large cigar and whiskey selection and owner Lee Ringleheim’s family recipes. We’re sold. End your night on a nostalgic note, while staying firmly rooted in the present, with your love.
