Dim Sum & Wine For When You're Somehow In Midtown East
Hutong is here! The beloved Asian chain from across the pond is officially open for business in New York. Known for classics like dim sum and roast duck, you and your sweetie can dine in the 19,000 squarefoot (!!) of space dedicated to serving up the favorites. The menu is a touch seafood heavy for all of you sushi lovers out there, but even meat lovers and vegetarians will salivate over the offerings. They also have a perfectly curated cocktail menu if you want to hit up the bar before you pick up the chopsticks. Try the Comfortably Numb, which blends vanilla vodka with lychee and pepper. We’re sure it’ll put you in the mood...for food.
When you’re full, walk off some of that dim sum and head on over to Serena’s just a few blocks away. A cozy, French themed wine bar with seasonal outside seating, they offer a vast selection of reds, whites, and roses for winos. For those who like the bubbly, they have that too! And no worries if you’ve become accustomed to drinking boxed wine on the couch. The waitstaff here knows their stuff. They’ll help you pick out the perfect nightcap.
