There comes a moment when every romance, new or old, comfortable or awkward, is tested. Your date leans forward, eyes on yours, to ask with bated breath: “Where should we go tonight?” Don’t worry (and don’t groan) — we’ve got you covered.
Keep it light over anchovy skewers at El Pingüino (also, who knew Greenpoint was the hot new date neighborhood?), test your feelings while watching your partner slurp on ramen at Takumen, or go all out with a Mexican tasting menu in Gowanus at Claro.
So, go ahead: get made up, don your finest attire, blowout your new haircut, and whip out those new shoes you bought in 2020 that you haven’t worn yet. You deserve it.
