PLAN DATE: TUES / JUL. 10
Tucked inside the Dominick Hotel, Spring & Varick is a chic, downtown American restaurant open morning to night. If your mouth isn’t already watering at the sound of lobster hash, pork belly bahn mi, cauliflower steak and squid ink linguine, we can guarantee their extensive dessert and cocktail menus will get you there. Chef John Creger (who, among many other accolades, was crowned King of the Wings in Harlem for his glazed duck wings) creates seriously upscale dishes without the insane price tags. An obvious choice for dinner when you’re in the Soho area.
After dinner, we’d be remiss if we didn’t tell you to stop by Dominique Ansel Bakery since you are within walking distance. And whenever you’re in walking distance of Dominique Ansel, you go. Yes, they’re famous for the cronut (and it is damn delicious) but they have so much more to offer. The frozen s’mores and chocolate chip cookie milk shooters will have you understanding the meaning of life. Sit in their back greenhouse-esque dining room and enjoy your treats.
