Going anywhere with the person you love is the best. But it does help to also be eating really good food, right? Cue Clove—an Indian restaurant in Hamilton Heights that prides themselves on their authentic menu. What sets this restaurant apart is the modern twist they add to all of their recipes (which have been specially passed down through the owner’s family). With a chill and relaxed ambiance characterized by artsy pillars and candles lighting up the walls, plus your choice of more open or intimate seating, Clove might just be your new favorite Indian spot.
After you’ve had your fill, head over to the Hogshead Tavern, where according to the Harlem Times, you’ll find the best craft beer in all of Harlem. This small and independent locale captures the essence of the neighborhood with their signature Hogshead share plates, wine on tap, craft beer and trendy atmosphere.
