PLAN DATE: WEDS / OCT. 10
Start the night off at the newly opened Ristoro del Cinghiale, the second restaurant venture from Nicola Marzovilla, who also founded the 24-year-old iconic Italian spot, i Trulli, next door. Inspired by authentic Tuscan flavor, the menu features Tuscan meats, cheeses, handmade pasta, and a $98 fired-roasted steak from executive chef Ben Smallman. Tonight is all about indulging whether it’s in the form of one of their incredible dishes or one of their six different batched Negroni variations. If you’re looking for the best photo opp of the night, we recommend ordering the George Hock cocktail, which is served in a chilled bottle and poured tableside. If weather permits, take your dinner outside to the open-all-year outdoor terrace.
Once you’re ready to move on with the evening, walk a few blocks over to The Clocktower located on the second floor of The Edition Hotel. Dimly lit lights will welcome you into a posh atmosphere surrounded by lounge seating, a glowing center bar, and a pool table. Sip on eccentric cocktails such as the Dill or No Dill made with Bluecoat gin, fresh dill, smashed cucumber, lemon juice, elderflower syrup, and smoked salt solution, all while taking in the romantic vibes of the bar.
