Caroline Schulweis: "Take one of the wine and cheese classes (book on website ahead of time)! They'll walk you through wine and cheese pairings with a wine expert and a cheese expert. It's a great date night activity."
Andy Rosenberg: "Great spot to bring a date or your parents who are visiting you and asking if you have found a nice girl yet. The Ricotta Lemon Pancakes are fantastic. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check."
Bommy Cha: "Cozy and quiet place to relax, sip all kinds of oolong teas, and converse with a friend. Small space so don't bring a crowd. Owners are friendly. Pineapple linzer cookie is delicate and delicious."
dawn.in.newyork: "Breathtaking views and great cocktails. It's true that the dress code here is quite strict, especially when its crowded, but unless you are trying to get in with your cargos or nikes, you'll be ok."
Eater: "From Ryan Sutton's 3 star review on live spot prawn: "ou pick up it with your hands and eat it; be sure to savor the jelly-like texture as it slide down your throat; this is a maritime gummy worm.""
Ranu Rajkarnikar: "This place is 100% worth it. Go during the week when Chef Nakazawa is working and sit at the bar. Do the sake pairing. And then just stare at your date with delicious sushi in your mouth and smile."
Ray Lin: "Neatly tucked away on a quaint but gorgeous West Village block, this fantastic Italian spot is a perfect choice for an intimate date. Order tapas style and share a couple pastas and apps. Molto Buono!"
Elyse Estrada: "New favorite! Bruce the manager is a gem! Get the burrata (always a special app), kale salad, spaghetti polpetti, tortellini w/cream sauce. Pair it w/a bottle of Super Tuscan & finish w/bread pudding!"
Anthony LaRusso: "Be sure and silently thank the parish and their owners for trusting New Yorkers enough to give them this delicious taste of solitude. Good karma surely will come flying back to you& everyone involved!"
Dan Goldin: "I've walked by this garden a ton of times without ever going inside. Lucky for me, one day the weather was nice and I decided to give it a wander. Glad I did! It's a great place to relax."
