PLAN DATE: TUES / SEP. 4
Since you’ll want plenty of energy for dinner later on in the evening, La Colombe Torrefaction has you covered. This super snazzy coffeehouse will prove once and for all that good coffee is less a drink than it is an experience. Whether or not you leave with one of their delicious bags of coffee beans (we love their Malawi-Mzuzu Union with flavor notes of papaya, molasses, and lavender), you’ll totally dig the classy, caffeine-obsessed vibe here. The La Colombe cafes are all about pairing an elevated coffee experience with an atmosphere and aesthetic as rich as its brew.
Now that you’re fueled up, prepare yourselves for something next-level delicious. The homespun-chic vibe at Añejo Tribeca will have you impressed from the get-go, but just wait until you taste the food. Start with the guacamole trio — featuring a traditional, bacon & habanero and spicy pineapple spread. Then hit up the small plates. We love the pork belly tostada, ahi tuna ceviche, and the duck carnitas enchiladas. If you’re drinking, you can’t miss with the Añejo margarita with El Jimador, Cointreau, lime, and agave. Perfection in simplicity.
