PLAN DATE: MON / OCT. 22
First, kick things off at Maysville for some southern-inspired food. The decor is ultra chic and modern here, but with a fitting southern tinge (namely with the black and white sketches of horses donning the walls). That said, the real draw here is the menu. Between trout schnitzel (with oma’s potato salad, watercress, and pickled red onion), dirty rice risotto (with duck bits, pork sausage, and charred red onion), and fava bean ravioli (with morel mushrooms, green garlic, and manchego cheese), you’ll see immediately why this place is a must for New Yorkers. What’s more is that this restaurant puts as much focus on its dinner as it does its bourbon, so be sure to pair your meal with one of its 150 different selections of American Whiskey.
After dinner, walk over to Idea Coffee for a cup of tea, decaf coffee, or one of their sweet treats to close out the night. There’s plenty of seating, and the wood walls, tables, and accents make it feel very cozy. The flowers hanging on the walls add a nice touch too. Come up with your next big idea together. Why not?
17 West 26th Street, Manhattan
idk tip: For dessert, go all-in on the bourbon with their Maple Bourbon Creme Brulee.
246 5th Avenue, Manhattan
idk tip: Try the Golden Latte — it’s like a chai, but made with turmeric. But if you feel like Instagramming, get the lightbulb coffee.
