PLAN DATE: TUES / APR. 2
It’s Italian eating in Sunnyside, Queens at corner spot, SoleLuna. This bright, cheery, yet casual restaurant has a menu filled with classics, like house-made pastas and a tableside branzino special. With exposed brick and high ceilings, this spot brings the taste of Italy to the neighborhood. Start your meal with an Italian aperitivo like an Aperol spritz or negroni and get settled with your boo in this cozy space. On top of simple, good food, the bartender and staff are extremely warm and friendly, adding to the overall homey vibe.
After dinner, head to 4 Squared Flavors for some good ol’ fashioned froyo. With a good mix of flavors and ample toppings, you can go all out since you pay by the cup size and not by weight. There are fruit-focused flavors, like mango and pomegranate, along with the classics—chocolate and vanilla—and you top off your yogurt with fresh fruits, candy, cookie crumbles, and granola. There’s a brightly colored seating area to enjoy your creation over casual conversation.
