dinner: supper (2nd street and avenue a)
drinks: shoolbred's (12th street and second avenue)
supper is lowlit and cozy, and i love their simple, fresh dishes. the garlic, olive oil, and sea salt bruschetta and spaghetti al limone are my go-to. bonus: they accept reservations. heads up: they are cash-only. after dinner, walk up to shoolbred's for mulled cider and an armchair near the fireplace. the perfect winter night.
this was our second date and i've got such a fondness for these spots. we recently went on this date all over again and it was just as good the second time around. :)
