Request: Special birthday dinner date downtown
|Apple Cider Doughnuts @ Hearth|
1. Hearth 403 East 12th St. @ 1st Ave. I've been here a couple of times - both great experiences. The add-on for me the second time around was stopping at Terroir (the bar next door) before dinner. Just a really romantic place to grab a glass of wine before dinner. While at dinner, make sure to order their gnocchi. It's by far the best in the city - melts in your mouth! And their apple cider doughnuts for desert!
2. Marc Forgione 134 Reade St. nr. Hudson St. They received a Michelin Star and boy do they deserve it. Take one look at their menu and I have a feeling I'll know where you'll be going! :) The decor is rustic and very romantic and the wine list is extensive.

3. Degustation Wine and Tasting Bar 239 E. 5th St. nr. 2nd Ave. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary - this place is extraordinary! Everything from the space (16 seats to be exact) to the menu will keep you coming back. Opt for the 5 course tasting menu for a special treat for $50. Although it'll feel like you should spend a lot more!
