PLAN DATE: TUES / NOV. 13
First, let’s eat. Before you head up to the High Line (the entrance is just across the street), grab a seat at Bubby’s for some pre-stroll sustenance. This laidback, rustic-industrial restaurant feels like a Southern home away from home, with comfort food that ranges between bacon wrapped meatloaf and fried chicken & pancakes. With the homespun atmosphere and country-style decor, you’ll no doubt have “Sweet Home Alabama” stuck in your head, whether it’s playing in the restaurant or not. Just be sure not skimp out on their homemade and flaky AF buttermilk biscuits.
Next, head up to the High Line. This NYC staple is an elevated park that runs just about a mile and a half through the city, built on the bones of the old New York Central Railroad. With amazing views of the city, incredible building-side murals, and gardens woven meticulously in between its linear landscape, the High Line sets a ridiculously high bar for romantic strolls. What’s more is that it also doubles as the ideal form of bar-hopping in the city, with plenty of pubs and cocktail lounges lining its entire route.
Dinner, Romantic Stroll, Drinks
73 Gansevoort Street, Manhattan
idk tip: Like the good country-style restaurant it is, the best part of Bubby’s is their homemade pies. And, if you want something extra rich, order a slice of the Banoffee (bananas, dulce de leche, espresso) with some Ample Hills ice cream on the side.

idk tip: Reserve a seat at the gold-trimmed Top of the Standard for a fancy cocktail overlooking the Hudson River.
