PLAN DATE: WEDS / MAY 15
Well, the falafel at Kulushkat can get it. If you’re in the mood for some Middle Eastern food in a cozy setting, this is where you’re meant to be. Their slogan? “Shut Up and Eat. Grandma says so!” Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or a big meat-lover, there are many options on the menu that will transport you right to Tel-Aviv—think Israeli salad, hummus, and shawarma galore. This place is nothing fancy, so you can keep it casual if you so choose. It’s a great first stop to fill your bellies before the next adventure of the night.
Up next, dessert and cocktails at Parkside. This bar and restaurant is hidden among the chaos that is Flatbush Avenue, but it’s truly a gem. While known for its pizza offerings (and yes, the pizza is fab), the cocktails are off-the-charts incredible. The cocktail menu translates each list of ingredients into an explanation of what it will taste like..like a ‘Cocktails for Dummies,’ but in the coolest way. The ambiance is pretty cool—there are lights dangling from the ceiling and candles placed around the liquor on the bar… it’s as if the alcohol is glowing! And if you’re there on the right night, you’ll see some live music, too. As for dessert, go with the bread pudding—it’s huge and topped with Nutella and whipped cream. Yum.
