PLAN DATE: FRI / DEC. 7
First, get wrapped up in Fava Bistro’s sunny disposition for dinner. This Mediterranean restaurant is as cute as it is cozy, with an all-white palette dressed in bright blue accents and a glassed-in facade. You’ll seriously feel like you’re dining inside a minimalist pastel Greenwich Village garden—which extends well into the menu, with meticulously plated dishes like housemade merguez, crispy fava chips, and tabouli salad. If you want a visual pick-me-up (with some insanely delectable flavors as an added bonus), Fava Bistro is a serious must.
After dinner, go from an indoor garden party to low-key tea time. Bosie Tea Parlor is all about rustic, nonchalant vibes, with hundreds of loose-leaf tea options and some incredible tea service options if you want to elevate your experience. You can go with their classic Bosie Tea Service (tea and sweets) or Champagne Tea Service (tea and sweets and bubbly); though, whichever option you go with, it’ll be near impossible to not be impressed by their precision with detail, flavor, and a classic romantic atmosphere. Just keep in mind that their tea service ends at 9 p.m.

idk tip: Their Black Berry Fizz is a major standout when it comes to their cocktails, namely on account of it combining blackberry acid, lemon activated charcoal and egg whites.

idk tip: They offer a third tea service for $120, but it includes more of a dinner experience—which you two will have already covered at Fava Bistro.
