PLAN DATE: SAT / DEC. 16
If you and your S.O. haven’t been to FiDi in awhile, it’s time to see what you’ve been missing in the once-sleepy area of town. Start with dinner at Schilling, where Michelin-starred chef Eduard Frauneder (of Edi & the Wolf fame) showcases his take on Australian-Mediterranean food at this popular FiDi day-to-night bistro. Wash down Euro favorites like spätzle, wiener schnitzel, and apple strudel with an array of creative cocktails, designed by the team behind The Third Man cocktail bar in the East Village.
Then, keep the European theme going by heading to Ulysses, a brisk walk away. The after-work favorite for I-bankers and the downtown scene transforms into a festive dance party in the evening with BritPack, a British invasion cover band, which will be celebrating holiday cheer all throughout the night. If it’s chilly on the walk over, you can your partner can warm up with Ulysses’s traditional Irish coffee, made with Clontarf Irish whiskey, specialty Demerara sugar, and grated nutmeg.
