  • Date Night Is...
    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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

    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.

    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).

    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

    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!

    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

    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!

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

    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.

    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).

    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

    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.

    Great atmosphere in a intimate setting. Tasty cocktails and burger. A nice spot for a date or late lunch on the weekend.

    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.

    Super discrete & hidden place. Steam punk style decor. Whimsical. Good food and drinks. Recommend the lobster poached eggs and salmon tartar.

    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.

    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).

    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

    If you're looking for a culinary adventure, look elsewhere. The entrees are bare: expect mains without sides. That being said, great ambiance and decor. Drinks > dinner

    Solid drinks but only around 6 bar stools and maybe 10-15 table seats. Don't come here with a crowd.
  • Mathias Høst N.
    Used to like this it, but the service was super bad today. Waited 1h in the bar for a table, yet people just walked in and got one. Closed the tap without a table and told the owner. Not even a sorry.

    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
