PLAN DATE: TUES / JUNE 26
Created from the James Beard Award-winning team behind Maison Premiere, Sauvage is a dining experience you won’t want to miss. We recommend dining outside on the patio — you’ll be surrounded by McCarren Park and the East River, and the views are pretty spectacular. Order whatever’s on deck in terms of oysters to start, then go with the local black bass or the burger with smoked cheddar, dijon, and red onion relish. We also love the Riding Tigers cocktail made with the slightly sweet peach pisco, and for dessert, the pecan rum cake. Voilà, the perfect dinner.
To close out the night in style, head to summer hotspot Westlight, a rooftop bar on the 22nd floor of the William Vale Hotel that offers incredible views of the big apple. Take in the 360-degree vantage point of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens through floor-to-ceiling windows while sipping on inventive cocktails. When we say it’s the perfect #CoupleGoals photo opp, we mean it.
905 Lorimer Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: Of the house cocktails we suggest the Pastis Cobbler made with argala pastis, cherry, quina and chamomile.
111 North 12th Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: If you can, we recommend syncing your visit with the sunset because nothing beats the view from 22 floors up.
