PLAN DATE: WEDS / SEP. 26
To begin, get comfy at Coco Pazzo. This gorgeous, but unpretentious trattoria has Tuscan roots, but a modern edge. With gorgeously plated dishes like charred octopus & buratta and bucatini with pistachio-stuffed grilled sardines, the rustic fare pairs perfectly with the overall quaint, but polished motif. With light, creamy tones and a warm, Italian countryside atmosphere, the romantic vibes here are on point.
Next, head to Chobani SoHo for some casual (but surprisingly creative and healthy) treats. Obviously, the base for all of their snacks is their trademark Greek yogurt, but the ingredients are what set this apart from any of their general flavors you can buy in-store, and we especially love Pistachio + Chocolate and Blueberry + Power. This wood, copper, and glass-centric yogurt bar is low-key, but inviting, with an overall lively ambiance to bright tonight’s mood. Just keep in mind that they close at 7 p.m., so you may even consider coming here for some appetizers beforehand instead, depending on how early you go out.
160 Prince Street, Manhattan
idk tip: We’re a little obsessed with their Taglieri (especially with the hand-carved board it’s served on), and we think you will be too.
152 Prince Street, Manhattan
idk tip: If you’re still craving something savory, you’ve got options. And, for a more alternative dessert, you can opt for something like the Mango + Avocado or Cucumber + Olive Dip.
