PLAN DATE: THURS / DEC. 20
For all your favorite food qualities—organic, sustainable, fresh, local and grassfed—you and your person will want to head to Superfine, where a ritzy and seasonal Mediterranean-inspired menu awaits. Artsy yet unpretentious, this converted warehouse space boasts an open kitchen and a passionate owner committed to serving only fresh and fine fare: pork chops with chive and roasted garlic mashed potatoes, shaved brussel sprouts and dark greens slaw; or luscious spicy beef meatballs with warm goat’s cheese. Live music will likely serenade your deliciously wholesome meal, and eclectic cocktails, like their Pink Lemonade, are there to add an extra flair.
Afterward, head to Burrow—this quaint patisserie combines the best of the best in sweet treats. French and Japanese influences merge for stuff that’s perfectly flaky, just the right ratio of tart, with the lightest creams, freshest jams, and fluffiest mousses. While they carry a couple of savory items, it’s their sugar store that really gets the hype. Decadent pastries like Pistachio Cake, Ginger Pie, creamy Choux puffs and over 12 kinds of ever-changing cookies are available to satiate your sweet tooths and give you something to happily take turns sharing bites of. Take a bit of tea or coffee to settle serenely after your meal and perfectly pair your decorous treats with a warm drink.
