This Is The Best East Village Bar For A Low Key Drink With Your Person

With homemade pasta, an excellent wine program, and a cozy, intimate space that immediately makes you feel like family when you enter, Misirizzi is an awesome date spot. Start with pan-seared scallops with crispy pancetta, then divide and conquer the pastas—we like their gnocchi and the strascinati with wild mushroom and lamb sausage.

After dinner, head to The Scratcher, a laid back bar tucked away off a side street on East 5th. With quality drink specials, low light, and great music, this chill spot is the perfect place to grab a drink and catch up with your person.
