PLAN DATE: SUN / DEC. 10
New York in the winter means an endless quest to stay warm indoors, and there’s no better way to do that than by basking in the heat of a crackling fireplace next to your loved one at one of NYC’s chicest hotels. Warm up with a cocktail concoction from one of The Bowery Hotel’s master bartenders before ordering an appetizer from Gemma, which serves its exquisite Italian offerings directly to patrons in the lounge.
When it’s dinner time, cross the street to Saxon + Parole, a Bowery favorite known for its seafood towers (oysters, prawns, and lump crab with saffron aioli, anyone?) and its relentless commitment to meat. Feeling brave? Try sharing the Holy Cow! featuring three cuts of meat (45-day dry-aged Tomahawk, bavette steak, and hanger steak) for $215.
