PLAN DATE: SUN / OCT. 14
Prepare to get rawmantic tonight with some raw fish at Omen Azen. This Japanese SoHo eatery is a low-key and low-lit sushi bar that specializes in Kyoto-style sushi (that means it uses cured fish) that puts a serious amount of focus on presentation (#glamlife). And, if you want to live large, they offer two different tasting menus, ranging between $89.50 and $99.50 per person, that includes the majestic cauliflower tofu with strawberry caviar sauce. If you want a traditional Japanese atmosphere with some elevated decadence on your plate, check this place out.
After dinner, get a non-alcoholic buzz at Ground Support Coffee, a super laid-back coffee house in SoHo that is all about its communal setting. So, yeah, dinner was all about one-on-one intimacy, but here it’s all about sharing the love and cozying up with strangers. Leaning on its hipster vibes, Ground Support is decked out in weathered picnic tables, local photography, and a skylight in the back to bring in some charming late night moonlight. Also, we’re obsessed with their iced matcha latte, so if the changing leaves have you pining for that summer green, this drink is key.
