Tequila and Mexican Followed By a Hidden Wine Bar May Sound Strange...But Trust Us

We find that tequila pairs well with date night, so we're often on the hunt for excellent Mexican spots. Mexicue in Flatiron is a go-to for tacos and margaritas. Split an order of guac and chips, order a few tacos—for a twist on the usual, we like the house cured duck and pork belly—and choose from their refreshing list of margaritas, which include a fireball tequila-based option. Don’t miss out on the churro nachos. With cinnamon-dusted house chips, lime whipped cream, and caramel drizzle, they’ll make for a sweet end to the night.
Then, take a quick trip over to Broadway to visit Wined Up, a trendy wine bar hidden up a flight of stairs that makes for a quintessential date spot. As the place derives its namesake from wine, we certainly suggest you sample one of the restaurant’s dozens of bottles from all over the world. But, the spot also provides an eclectic menu serving appetizers, sandwiches, dinner entrees, and a number of specialty cocktails—cucumber gin fizz, anyone?
