PLAN DATE: SUN / APR. 21
I’ll take a scoop of Hillary Clinton, and Jay-Z, please. A master at flavor and texture, Mikey (Michael Cole) creates unique, custom ice cream flavors inspired by pop-culture icons by combining the best locally sourced ingredients in the New York area at his store Mikey Likes It. He’s garnered national coverage from leading publications including The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, Essence and New York Magazine. It’s legit and it’s your dessert stop for the night. Create your own flavor. Mikey himself says “you name it, we’ll make it.”
Fresh local oysters for $1.50 and a glass of rose for $7. Welcome to Zadie’s Oyster Room. A small, hole in the wall type of place you might like to think is your little secret featuring a raw bar that runs the length of the space, and a few high top tables. It’s the kind of wine bar that makes you feel like you’re visiting friends. Tucked off the busier 1st Avenue, you can settle into the happy hour to make the most of the oyster and wine specials, but to be honest, every hour here feels like happy hour and makes for the perfect casual date night.
