PLAN DATE: WEDS / MAY 29
When you need to impress your date with more than just your sparkling personality, then take them to Reynard. Located inside the Wythe hotel, this restaurant feels upscale without a stuffy hotel restaurant vibe thanks to marble tables, a charming dark oak bar, and huge windows. Their menu isn’t huge and instead focuses on quality to bring fresh produce to your plate with New American flavors. Whether you have grilled lamb or the arugula flatbread fresh off their wood-burning grills or opt for a touch of octopus, your tastebuds will feel as fancy as the ambiance.
Continue the vibe of fancy spaces by grabbing drinks at Kinfolk 94. Just past the Kinfolk store, this bar offers drinks, a space for performing acts, and the coolest architecture in any bar this side of the Gowanus Canal. The bar has a dome-like structure, with blond wood meeting in geometric patterns to form over your head. The effect leaves you feeling like you’re drinking in an Ikea-sponsored art exhibit. As for the drinks they sling, along with beer and wine options they specialize in fresh, fruity blended cocktails that often come inside a coconut or watermelon shell. Take a sip and let thoughts of the beach take you away.
