PLAN DATE: TUES / JAN. 8
Winter romance is in the air this evening with dinner and drinks in the oh-so-charming Greenpoint neighborhood. Start your evening off with dinner in the magnificently designed, Norman restaurant located in the A/D/O creative space. The long marble bar, exposed brick walls, and floor to ceiling windows create a loft-like feel for the casual, yet refined (read: extremely Brooklyn) eatery, bakery, and bar. With dishes like crispy farro porridge with wild mushrooms, the menu presents shareable plates with a Scandinavian influence that warm your soul making it an ideal winter destination.
End your evening with a seasonal, hand-crafted cocktail at Diamond Lil on Nassau Ave. The knowledgeable bartenders are serious mixologists and can help guide you to the drink of your dreams with their rotating cocktail list. Or opt for one of their winter classics like a hot toddy or spiked apple cider. No matter your drink of choice, this incredibly romantic setting with an art nouveau-inspired interior filled with lush plants, plush velvet booths, custom wood details, and hand-painted wallpaper will keep you and your date warm on this winter night. Snag a booth for two, share secrets over candlelight, and settle in for the night.
