Great Seafood Run By A Husband-Wife Team, Then Get Gay With Henrietta!
You know the saying—if you can’t make it to the Hamptons, bring the Hamptons to you. Okay, no one says that, but since you can’t always swing mid-week PTO to head to your favorite summer beach town, we suggest The Leroy House as your weekday substitute. Helmed by husband and wife team Terry and Lisa Murphy Harwood, who are also the owners of East Hampton spot Cove Hollow Tavern, this newly-opened classic American restaurant boasts barn wood floors, antique lanterns, a marble bar, and an easy ambiance perfect for date night. Grab a bite of farm-to-table goodness and make sure to order some seafood—the Harwoods know what they're doing there.
Turn up the dial on the night and head to Henrietta Hudson, and make sure to call her by her proper name: Henrietta Hudson Bar and Girl. Yep, that’s Girl, not “Grille.” Lesbian-owned and operated, Henrietta Hudson is the city’s number one lesbian bar, and if you’re here, you love love in all of its iterations. The lovin’ only intensifies as the night goes on, so grab your lover, hit the dance floor, and do your part to celebrate Pride Month.
