PLAN DATE: TUES / APR. 30
Get ready to travel from the forest to the sea in the East Village tonight. Start off with dinner at the rustic, but elegant restaurant, The Cabin. The dim lighting, antler chandeliers, and faux tree adorned with twinkling lights will transport you and your love to a chic cabin in the woods. The menu encourages sharing—think small plates of crispy Brussel sprouts, bone and marrow toast, and charcuterie spreads. Your trip would be remiss if you didn’t hit up their Instagramable moment—a hanging swing surrounded by tree branches with a neon sign celebrating #cabinlife.
After dinner, celebrate all things beachy and nautical with tiki drinks at The Lost Lady. The walls are decorated with photos and paintings of seafaring ships and you’ll find dancing mermaids on the glasses. Add to that the wood-paneled ceiling and the string lights, and you’ve got yourself a nautical oasis. While tiki drinks like the Painkiller and Lost Zombie are their specialty, there are also robust offerings of beer and wine. The drinks are beautifully crafted and served stiff. Be sure to hit up the jukebox to put on some of your favorite tunes and soak up all the chill vibes.
