PLAN DATE: TUES / JUNE 4
Inventive Korean cooking meets big name Momofuku at high end and intimate restaurant Kāwi. A menu of rice cakes, stews, meats, anju (drinking snacks), hwe (raw fish) and kimbap (a variety of ingredients rolled into rice and dried seaweed) encompasses all that you and your love need for pure, unadulterated food satisfaction. The sumptuous, delicately prepared cuisine includes crowds favorites like white pepper wings and oxtail brisket jjim, while hitting even crazier cravings with unique dishes like their foie gras terrine and rice cake dumplings. If you and your love are all about trying anything and everything, then a date here should be your next romantic venture.
Afterward, give your sexy evening a sentimental summer spin with a stroll over to The Frying Pan, a historic, barnacle-encrusted lightship on the banks of the Hudson that doubles as a lively dive bar. The charming, railroad-esque barge is vintage and laidback, with an eccentric interior that features catwalks and exposed engine rooms for some seriously fun surroundings. Get boozy, get smooth, and get ready to catch some stellar night sky views with your love at this sea-spangled nightcap of a bar.

idk tip: You’re not going to find it easy anywhere in New York, so you might want to try their tender, rich marinated raw crab while you can.
