At Felice 64, rustic never looked so hip. This cozy trattoria is ripe with Italian inspiration (specifically from Florence and Tuscany), with the exception of some idiosyncratic flairs (i.e. the massive and bulbous chandelier strung front and center, exposed brick walls dressed with industrial pipe shelving, and a complex, but rustic archway at the entrance fashioned out of reclaimed wood). Just be sure to pair your meal with one of their many eco-friendly wines produced in their own Italian vineyard, Fattoria Sardi Giustiniani.
After dinner, make your way to Treadwell Park. This modern spin on a sports bar has all the classic accouterment one might expect (like widescreen TVs and greasy bar food), but with the addition of some elevated touches. With a metal coffered ceiling, cedar wood walls, floors, and tables, and your choice of either ping pong or pinball, Treadwell Park embodies a simplistic, but unique bar atmosphere.
