PLAN DATE: SUN / NOV. 4
If you’re looking for the best sushi in the area, look no further than Momoya. With two locations—one in Chelsea and one in the Upper West Side—Momoya has created a stellar reputation attracting clientele from all over the city. Their menu offerings are delicious and extensive with a large selection of hot and cold appetizers, sushi rolls, and kitchen entrees. We suggest starting your meal with the kale gyoza or the sweet miso black cod. When it comes to sushi rolls you absolutely cannot miss the crispy rice with spicy tuna, jalapeno, and eel sauce. And, if you’re in the mood for something different than sushi, try the noodle udon or soba dish made with your choice of beef, chicken, or tempura vegetables.
After dinner, walk up the street to neighborhood staple The Gin Mill for drinks in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. This spacious neighborhood bar comes from the same team that brought The Stumble Inn, Hair of the Dog, and Jake’s Dilemma to the city. Here, happy hour specials like $12 pitchers, and half price bar cocktails last well into the night, making this a fun yet inexpensive evening.
