Open up your evening together with a hidden gem of a coffee spot tucked in the basement of the Flatiron Brooks Brothers. Little red cups, dark wood, and deep comfy sofas make this the perfect after-work meet-up point to snuggle up with some extra good coffee, tea, beer, wine, or whatever you please—but rest assured, it’s fancy. Catch up on each other’s day while catching a break from the big city at the warm, vintage lodge that is the Red Fleece—where the volume is always at just the right level to have an intimate conversation and share a couple smiles over just how good the cafe cuisine is.
Once you’ve recuperated some energy via coffee or wine, turn New York into Paris by twirling over the city streets and into L’Express, a 24/7 classic French bistro with red leather chairs and close-together tables under a dim yellow light. This is the type of place where it always feels midnight and secret. Get lighthearted and try out those escargot (yep, snails) you’ve always wondered about, or share a plate of french fries if the frog legs aren’t for you. Whether you settle for French Onion Soup or try something new, this top-quality casual Paris chic is just right for a fun little city-getaway.
