PLAN DATE: FRI / MAY 11
We’re all about guilty indulgences (see: date nights at the House of Yes), but for nights where you want to enjoy your lover’s company and walk out of a restaurant without feeling like you ate your weight in butter and cream sauce, check out La Pecora Bianca in NoMad. This bright and lively Italian restaurant offers all of your tried and true favorites, but lightened up and healthified. Pastas are made in-house with local, organic grains, and produce and meats are sourced from the Hudson Valley.
Grab the check, and make your way to the Flatiron Room, where the ‘50s are alive and well. With live jazz, vintage Italian floral wallpaper, and old school rolling library ladders, this place makes a strong introduction. Whiskey lovers will particularly love this spot—with over 1,000 bottles of old, rare, indie, and classic bottles to choose from, the Flatiron Room takes their fermented grains seriously. Find something you love? Buy the bottle, and bartenders will tag it with your name and store it in a private locker to enjoy on your next visit.
