Hello there, Chics!
We sometimes have trouble picking out the best restaurants for a first date, especially when there’s so many to choose from in New York! If you’re having trouble finding a nice, comfortable and, somewhat, affordable place to carry a meaningful conversation with your date over a delicious meal, we have three recommendations that will make you want to visit before the end of the Summer!
Location: 775 Washington St, New York, NY 10014
If you’re looking to impress your date with some mouth-watering Italian food, you should definitely check out Barbuto. This Italian restaurant is located in the West Village, on Washington Street. Ladies, make sure you try the Jonathan Waxman roast chicken! The JW chicken is the signature dish for the restaurant. Aside from its flavorful food, the ambiance of this Italian restaurant is nothing short of casual. This is the perfect spot to grab a dish that’ll befriend your taste buds and help you focus on your date. It’s a comfortable spot that offers great food and excellent service! The price range is a bit steeper than the rest of its competition, ranging from $31-60 but it is well worth a visit!
Location: 111 N 12th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249
If you’re looking for a spot outside of Manhattan, Westlight rooftop is the place to go! It offers a beautiful view of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline, setting the tone for a romantic night you and your date won’t forget! If you’re not a fan of the outside air hitting your face while you dig into your meal, they also have a stunning glassed-in lounge. Even the cocktail bar and food are phenomenal as well! Just be sure to reserve a table because the rooftop can develop a nightclub kind of atmosphere on Friday’s and Saturdays. The prices for this place are a bit steep as well, but the two of you will definitely have a memorable experience! They range from $31-$60 as well.
Location: 508 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036
This place is amazing for those who are looking to avoid those over-crowded upscale restaurants. Located in Midtown, Manhattan this restaurant is apart of the Cachet Boutique Hotel. You and your date can have a little fun playing pool in the free pool room, or head up to the beautiful sky deck that is also apart of the hotel. It’s a great place to hold an intimate conversation surrounded by beautiful decor and a lively ambiance. Even if you’re not checked-in at the hotel, you and your date will be treated to excellent service and amazing organic-Mediterranean style food. Prices generally range from $11-32! Not too bad for an upscale restaurant that’s a part of a hotel, huh?
