PLAN DATE: THURS / JUNE 27
The pristine view of Manhattan’s skyline is only the cherry on top of the details that make up Cecconi’s. Picture plush blue velvet that sinks beneath the hand, chandelier upon chandelier, perfectly folded pleats in gossamer drapes and shiny marble tiling—then picture the plates of pasta, seafood and Italian dishes that’ll be set before you with a fancy flourish by a waiter in a white tux. We’re talking handmade whipped ricotta drizzled in truffle honey, bucatini with bottarga and lemon bread crumbs, cavatelli in a lamb ragu, and spicy salami pizza.
Keep that unclouded view of the city in your sights with a delicate drink at Harriet’s Rooftop and Lounge, an old-fashioned cocktail spot atop 1 Hotel that promises more than just a gorgeous New York panorama. There’s space aplenty to catch the sunset outside, white satin umbrellas to lounge under, and cocktails, wine, and beer options to keep you company as you drink in the soul-touching views. Lean over the glass rails and toast each other with an unparalleled backdrop.
55 Water Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: If you’re all about fine veggies, go for their whole cauliflower with salmoriglio and almond aioli.

60 Furman Street, 10th Floor, Brooklyn
idk tip: This spot can get pretty busy, so booking a table through their website the morning of wouldn’t be a bad idea.
