1. Gage & Tollner
372 Fulton Street
Kick off dinner with a plate of clams kimsino. The tender meat is served with savory and tangy bacon-kimchi butter. This restaurant also features a generous raw bar. Ask about their daily selection of east coast oysters, or try it all with the chilled seafood platter. Pair a fresh seafood dish with prime cuts a la carte. Steaks include bone-in ribeye, NY strip, and veal chop. Dessert is also an elegant affair, featuring a range of pastries, chocolates, and cheeses. Be sure to try their selection of martinis, cocktails, and long drinks.
Celebrate a special occasion with a loved one while enjoying the menu’s sweet potato bombolini. The snack’s burgundy truffle and pancetta pepato creates a sweet, rich flavor you won’t soon forget. The menu’s mains are just as tantalizing and include dry-aged crown of duck. This culinary feat is served with Swiss chard and soppressata jam. While dining, be sure to clear the palate with playful cocktails like Bee’s Knees. This sweet gin drink is mixed with lemon and honey.
3. Leland Eating and Drinking House
755 Dean Street
Leland offers a great weekend brunch. Guests can pair a warm drink with baked goods like the cheddar jalapeno biscuit or order hearty plates such as the pork belly sandwich served on focaccia. After 5 pm, couples can peruse the dinner menu and try savory snacks like the trout rillette, whose smoky flavors melt perfectly into fennel and mustard seed garnishes. Afterward, dig into large plates like the half chicken, brined and dry-aged for 24 hours.
128 Greenpoint Avenue
Oxomoco is open for brunch all days of the week. Break your fast with a bowl of smoked chicken pozole, served with pickled onion and puffed red rice, and then try out morning tacos featuring lamb barbacoa, arrachera flank steak, and beet chorizo. For dinner, get classy with the peekytoe crab flan. This sweet dish is served with a side of golden osetra caviar. Perhaps one of the most delicious entrées is the Bavette, a tender steak with ancho butter and yellow salsa. This restaurant also has an extensive menu of spirits and drinks.
284 3rd Avenue
Catch up over a three-course brunch. Start off with a yellowfin tuna tostada with a tangerine vinaigrette. First courses lead flawlessly into main dishes like the mole rojo and desserts like the arroz con leche. Couples can also make a reservation for the restaurant’s infamous four-course dinner. First and second courses feature varied proteins, including octopus, bone marrow, lengua, and venison. Mains are just as exciting and include enmoladas negras, a duck confit with stone fruit. Be sure to share a flight of mezcal or try out their wines and cocktails.
