Nothing pairs better with great company than a "five star" dinner.  New York City offers hundreds of restaurants, but the best ones are harder to come by.  We are about to take away the pressure of impressing your date.  Choose from one of these hidden gems to ensure your date night is yummier than ever! 


John's of 12th Street


Located in the East Village, Johns on 12th is that comforting Italian dinner that you crave especially when it is cold outside!  Romantic atmosphere for couples and cozy for groups.  You can really taste the love and expertise in the dishes here.  The first time I highly recommend getting the Homemade Papadelle with Ragu or their famous meatballs.  They also have a Vegan menu, so bring your vegans along!

Mad Dog & Beans Mexican Cantina


Located on Stone Street in Downtown Manhattan, Mad Dog & Beans serves up (the best) fresh guacamole made to your spice liking, awesome appetizers like Grilled Mexican Corn, and authentic Mexican Entrees.  The only way you can go wrong here is leaving without having one of their KILLER Margaritas to compliment your meal! Romantic candle lit atmosphere, outdoor seating, and super fun for groups!
