PLAN DATE: SAT / AUG. 17
Great service, fresh food, a romantic setting that’s not stuffy: Coppola’s is the kind of Italian place you want in your own neighborhood. Ask for a garlic bread basket (totally worth the shared breath situation), split a caprese salad made with homemade mozz, then enjoy a homemade pasta dish, like tagliatelle with tons of seafood, or fettuccine with bolognese and ricotta. If it’s nice outside, ask for a seat on their patio for a beautiful meal al fresco.
With 30 taps and brewers from across the country, craft beer is the raison d’etre at the intimate Ted’s Corner Tavern. Get an IPA from LIC Beer Project and get snuggly at one of the candle-lit tables. Unlike a lot of high-end beer spots, they’re open until 2AM, so no need to rush. Not into beer? They have a great wine list, too, including a beautifully-balanced French rosé.
