Some of the Best Homemade Pasta in Manhattan Is in Greenwich Village—and at Under $20 a Plate
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
You and your lover will consider starting a thruple with whoever Andrea is after a night at this Northern Italian-inspired spot. Da Andrea has an unfussy vibe—we're talking wooden tables, warm yellow walls, and a few faded art pieces. Essentially, it’s your Italian grandmother’s house, if you were lucky enough to have one of those. The menu continues the laid-back vibe with all-homemade pasta under $20. You’ll pay a bit more for one of their meat entrees, but it’s worth it for a porkchop you can tell was made with love. Wash it all down with something from their extensive wine list and leave the rest to their attentive staff and the romantic atmosphere.
Then, take all that energy you saved during your quiet dinner and bring it to Secret Loft for the Wild Things Comedy Show, which promises to be wild, comedic, and a show (jury’s still out on how “thing”-y it is). This show is packed with established talent, with the lineup boasting Netflix specials, Comedy Central shows, and spots on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The price for this level of talent is less than $10—and that includes free pizza to snack on during the show. N.B.: No tickets at the door, so make sure to grab them ahead of time!
