PLAN DATE: WEDS / JUNE 6
Start your evening at high-end seafood spot The John Dory Oyster Bar located within the Ace Hotel. Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield’s seafood offering is presented across an array of tasteful small plates as well as a fresh raw bar. We recommend munching on a couple of bar snacks and enjoying a cocktail or two before heading to David Burke’s newest restaurant that opened earlier this spring, Woodpecker by David Burke.
The menu at Woodpecker is as good as you would expect from famous NYC Chef David Burke. Meats, veggies, and of course pizzas are all cooked out of a wood-fired oven offering an enormous selection of dishes to choose from. Make sure to indulge in Burke’s signature appetizer that features bacon strips displayed on a clothesline.
