PLAN DATE: TUES / MAY 7
Where are all of our Jewish couples at? Or couples that enjoy breath-taking exhibits. Our first stop is The Jewish Museum for their exhibit—Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything. This exhibit features 12 artists and 18 musicians from 10 countries and offers a deep and rich exploration of the beloved global icon through the lens of contemporary art. Hallelujah. It runs until Sept. 8th of this year—trust us, you don’t want to miss this. Other notable collections include at the museum include their Accumulations: Hanukkah Lamps—on display is the museums’ collection of more than 80 Hanukkah lamps originating from four continents, that has been amassed over 114 years. It’s a wow.
Having witnessed the story of one of the greatest musicians of all time, walk over to the French-American bistro Table d’Hote, that’s been on the Upper East Side since 1978. We love ordering sconces with cream while sitting underneath red toile lampshades that dot the white-wood paneled walls, arranged amongst mirrors, blue and white crockery, prints of flowers, and portraits in profile. Each table for two is topped with fresh flowers in a small milk pitcher—intimate, and romantic to boot. Plus, delicious menu items include rustic goat-cheese fritters with beets and haricots verts, and hearty hanger steak served with rich Stilton potatoes. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert! We recommend the chocolate tart.
