PLAN DATE: SUN / SEP. 9
First, start the night over dinner at Cervo’s. This chic eatery specializes in all things under the sea (with a special shout-out to its oyster bar), and its intimate, modern design does perfect justice to its bold, organic menu. We’re especially obsessed with the yellow slatwall panel booths, red and white encaustic floor tiles, and classic white tile walls to highlight the overall charming atmosphere.
After dinner, head to Les Enfants de Bohème for drinks and dessert. This gorgeous French bistro is petite but packs a punch with its New York-meets-Paris ambiance. With an entire wall covered in black and white sketches to highlight Les Enfants de Bohème’s understated artsy side, the homey vibes make for a perfect visual nightcap. Go for the La Boheme De L’eté made with fresh watermelon juice, vodka, ginger purée, lemon juice, and simple syrup.

idk tip: The stuffed peppers with sungolds and squid will have you hooked (*pats self on back for seafood humor*).
Les Enfants de Bohéme
177 Henry Street, Manhattan
idk tip: Pair their mini apple pie for two (with salted caramel and almonds) with their Two Bridges cocktail. Then kiss your fingers like a chef, because it’s that good.
