Giovanni’s brooklyn eats
The party was in a spot I had heard about but never been to— even as a born and raised New Yorker! The Grand Banks Schooner, on Pier 25 was the most picturesque and cool spot to party. We had a total blast. There is a mix of high and low— super exclusive to hole-in-the-wall. I love them all. Let me know if you love any of these places as much as I do— and please add your faves in the comments below!
This is the most delicious Italian, chic and fab restaurant— and my fave right now! For extra street cred, book a table in the wine cellar! The sushi is so fresh, and they have great value for lunch options as well. Their menu of Crudos is spectacular.
They also make a perfect Negroni. We came here for my birthday drinks this past year, and Kyle and I loved it so much!
I love this cozy and cool restaurant hidden a way down an alley on the Lower East Side. Cocktails are great here too. The burgers and fries are insane, and the bar has so much history.
Plan a game night
Last I checked it was Cash Only, so come prepared! I adore this farm to table asian restaurant! The food is so inventive and delicious, and the decor is very chic as well. A must try in the West Village. This spot is a NYC establishment, and still so chic. A great, special birthday meal.
Such a great fish restaurantwith a sleek and cool vibe. Excellent sushi too! The most delicious modern soul food— this place makes Harlem a destination for cuisine! We loved eating here and then bar hopping in the neighborhood. This place is really intimate, really elegant, and has great food.
What more is there? They are known for their parmesan drenched spaghetti dish that they make for you table side. A solid sushi spotand a great place for a date! Everything from the noodles to the fried chicken at this restaurant is delicious. I always order Naeng Myun, Mool, and Kalbi. They bring the Panchan side dishes for you to explore as well! I love how the whole restaurant is styled, down to the glassware and napkins.
I used to live above it and from time to time I would treat myself and sit alone at the bar for dinner. So yummy! This is an amazing little find in South Slope, Brooklyn! Not only is everything on the menu ridiculously delicious, but bottles of vino are also well-picked and super affordable. Another Brooklyn favorite, Leuca sits at the base of the William Vale hotel, and serves up some serious cocktails and Southern Italian fare from Chef Andrew Carmellini. This stylish restaurant sits at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge and has the most epic view of the East River. If you love xiao long bao, otherwise known as soup dumplings, then the only place to go is Flushing, Queens.
This gem of a restaurant is nothing fancy, but boy is the trip worth it. Photographs by Julia Dags. What a great roundup from across the boroughs!
LOVE all your picks. So funny about Grand Banks- ha! I will say if you get seasick may not be the best option, Kyle was a bit green by the end. We have been to many on your list but some are new to us, we will have to try them out! Thanks for all the ideas!

I lived and worked in NYC for 10 years and my favorite thing to do pre-kids was dinner in the city. My favorite is el cantinero on university place because we always went there for happy hour after work and I wound up marrying a coworker! I am so excited to show my kids all that NYC has ti offer. So delicious. I really like the restaurant picks. Having been diagnosed with celiac disease.
