    Date Night Is...April 30, 2013
    This cozy hole in the wall is one of the best Date Night spots in the area – arguably in the city. But get there early or at an off time or it can get utterly packed.

    This place appeals to wine-and-diners at any time of day, be it to enjoy coffee and muesli first thing or a braised beef baguette paired with a Negroni after work. Read more

    Even if the kitchen's closed you can get some potato chips with Russian dressing. Michael the bartender will make you a drink if you tell him what you like. Cozy place. Crowd older than expected.

    Yes, the best dark'n'stormy around. In summer, grab a table outside and order your food as soon as you sit down, since it takes a while (one bunsen burner). Be sure to use the bathroom, it's swag.

    The place is tiny and croweded but the perfect location for a snowy NYC night. Try the dark and stormy and enjoy the delicious good that the chef cranks out on induction burners at the bar! Read more

    There is no sign on the door, a gem in Tribeca. Get the avocado toast, salmon tartar and house pickled vegetables with a bottle of Riesling! Read more

    A rustic-chic gem of cocktail bar not much larger than a jewel box. Order a Negroni, and don’t be surprised if Robert DeNiro or Bradley Cooper wander in off for a night cap (001 212 226 2515).

    Restaurateur Matt Abramcyk’s cubbyhole hideout in a former seafarer’s inn serves retro cocktails and comfort food (meatballs; house-pickled vegetables).

    4 things to know: 1) order a Dark & Stormy 2) look around, conduits and other underground pieces are part of the charm 3) bathroom is an old elevator 4) go early or late. Peak times = bad experience

    Drinks and grub are great here, with a continental beer/wine list, tried and true cocktails, and plates like hungarian meatballs and mussels steamed in white wine. Read more

    Hidden treasure. Order the Moscow Mule..the best I've had on both coasts. Order the Ricotta - it's fantastic! I have to say, love it at Colonie but it's even better here.

    Max occupancy is 35...snagging a seat can be hard, and you have to order food if you sit at a table. Cool ambiance though with classic cocktails and some fun twists!

    Smith & Mills is one of my favorite places in the city. Better to go earlier in the evening (or on a weekend or on an off-night). Otherwise, the tiny spot is packed+loses charm

    Another one of my neighborhood favorites. Cozy and warm atmosphere, top notch cocktails. Have yet to try the food but they have a full menu!

    Try the Avocado Bruschetta - this was super good and spicy as cat shit...makes sense after looking at the pic, they only smothered the avocado with chili flakes

    Swordfish was great. Lamb meatballs seemed dry and sorta burnt. Bathroom is awesome. I have never seen a sink like that (fold it down, then back up to drain).

    Kale bruschetta, chicken liver mousse, OYSTERS, and pretty much everything on the brunch menu. Also, very enjoyable tropical pimm's cup. Intimate environment.

    Order a dark and stormy - they make it better than most. And if you're eating, try the the schnitzle and the salmon tar tar. Also cannot go wrong with a burger....

    Try the House Pickled Vegetables - this was my favorite of the night just bc i have a pickling fetish and care of nothing else when a good pickle is in front of me

    It used to be a horse stable, and the bathroom is an old elevator. Ship plans hang on the walls. The vintage cocktails are strong. Order a Negroni, like a fisherman would do after a big day's catch.

    This is my bar. I love it soo much, the staff, the food, and the drinks. It's in my top 10. Great place to bring friends or family who visit NY.

    A cute and cozy restaurant bar hidden in Tribeca. Wonderful small plates and cocktails. Our tip: Check out the beautifully designed 40’s era bathroom.

    I love this place but tonight I was not impressed by the oysters and the condiments... Love the atmosphere anyway and I will be back soon.

    If you can find it... do go. It's everything that's in season, simple but SO good. Great ambiance. Not great for large groups (it's tiny).

    It's amazing that this place serves food, the smallest kitchen I've ever seen (corner of the bar). Great spot for late-night drink and bites.

    Super discrete & hidden place. Steam punk style decor. Whimsical. Good food and drinks. Recommend the lobster poached eggs and salmon tartar.
  • Christina Renee J.
    The bathroom is gorgeous; antique, rustic, like a a secret garden. The mushroom and quinoa salad will make you never want to eat another kind of salad AGAIN.

    Tiny but cute. Must use the bathroom/former elevator. Awesome factoid: the kitchen is made of two hotplates behind the bar and food looks impressive!

    Excellent cocktails. For a teeny tiny kitchen smaller than my cutting board, it put out great appetizers and snacks!

    Tiny little hole in the Tribeca wall, with flashbulbs dancing outside with someone mega-famous walking by. Good manhattan, too.

    This place has a small cocktail list, but the drinks are strong and it's surprisingly laid back for Tribeca.

    I would come here just for the burrata. It's that good. The cocktails are great, too.

    Check out the bathroom, made out of a turn-of-the-century elevator with a flip-down sink from a Depression-era railway car.

    Sit on the single chair to the right of the bar and feel AC on a hot day like you've never felt it before!

    Stumbled in here by accident, ate some decent food, had some fancy cocktails. Tiny, dim lighting, and has a bathroom sink that requires flushing.
  • Anna S.
    Cute that they cook everything on a small stove behind the bar. Good for lunch in the summer

    Even if u had a burger for lunch, you won't regret this burger for dinner. 'Twas simply amazing.

    Very small so hit it up off-peak to get the charm from it. Saturday afternoon is my favorite time.
    Super cute little spot on the west side, interior design is great, but not a lot of tables - a must 'check in'

    Cocktails, sure, but don't sleep on the food. Cooked behind the bar on hot plates, but still pretty incredible,

    The ginger in the dark and stormy was so finely minced that I had chunks of ginger in my mouth after each sip which was not pleasant
