This New-Age Italian Joint Is All About Its Vibe, Its Garlic Knots, and Its Nutella Cheesecake

When we talk about Italian, words like “rustic" and “old country” usually get tossed around with more frequency and enthusiasm than pizza dough. Tonight, we’re keeping you on your toes and spicing up your date night Italian by throwing in a little rock and roll. Over in Kips Bay, Macchina is firing up your pizza and doing it with flair in an industrial and modern space. We dig the vibes, the garlic knots, and (as if you needed another reason to come here) the Nutella cheesecake.

After dinner, catch a show at the New York Comedy Club, a Gramercy mainstay that promises hilarity and hoopla seven nights a week. With three shows a night, open mic nights every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and recurring shows like "Cold Beer," "Classy," and "Roast Battle NYC," this stand-up spot is overflowing with good feels. You may run into your favorite podcast hosts (Guys We Fucked, Legion of Skanks, Tuesdays With Stories), SiriusXM personalities (Jay Oakerson, Dan Soder, Andy Fiori, Shuli Egar), TV stars (Judah Friedlander, Rell Battle, Andrew Schulz, Carly Aquilino), and many more.
