A cozy cafe with coffee during the day and cocktails at night, Lucille’s makes a great date spot for dinner and drinks. Nom on some jerk chicken tacos or shrimp and grits, and sip down cocktails with an array of fresh fruity flavors. The dinner menu’s petite but on point, and the overall vibe is very peaceful and comfortable. If the food here doesn’t fill you up, the restaurant has a pizzeria next door called Pizza by Lucille’s that should hit the spot.This spot is run by the same folks who run the Mexican street-food restaurant Oso in Harlem, aka Matthew Trebek, the son of Jeopardy’s host Alex Trebek. Answer: Lucille’s. Question: What is a great start to your night?
Now it’s time to get funky at Eso, a nearby bar whose DJ spins soul, r&b, and hip-hop all night long. Even though the venue is laid out much like a typical restaurant (and yes, the food menu is great—we suggest the burger or mac and cheese), it’s more of a people-watching, make-friends-with-strangers and dance-it-out kind of spot. Eso is known to play the night’s lineup of sports on huge televisions, so tuning in to the game is also an option.
