PLAN DATE: THURS / SEP. 6
Tonight is a low-key plan doubling as a special occasion. It’s our founder’s birthday, and this is exactly how she and her S.O. plan to celebrate. First up: a classic Italian dinner at San Carlo Osteria Piemonte in Soho, an authentic Piedmont restaurant (Piedmont is a region of Italy that borders France and Switzerland and sits at the foot of the Alps) born from the passion of six Italian friends. We love the backstory, but we love the pasta even more. From the Tajarin alle vongole (the thin, rich pasta of Piemonte with clams, tomato confit, and lemon) to the spaghetti alla chitarra aglio nero (homemade spaghetti with black garlic and spicy breadcrumbs) and all the gnocchi and risotto in between — we truly want to lick our plates clean everytime we’re here.
And there’s nothing better to do after a food coma than sit back and watch a great flick. That’s why we’re heading to the newly revamped movie theater, Film Forum. Check out their full lineup of films here (we especially love the Double Features — two films back to back for the price of one). This summer they went through a full renovation—a $5 million makeover—upgrading the seating, legroom, and sightlines in all theaters and adding a new, 4th screen. We couldn’t be more thrilled that they’re back in action.

idk tip: Did we forget to mention dessert? Their traditional Piedmontese flan with chocolate, caramel and almond cookies will change your life.
