Combine Nostalgia and Modernity at this Throwback Diner with Sophisticated Food
This date has now expired. Check out fresh, new dates here!
For a night out that lies somewhere between Chinatown, Little Italy, and SoHo, start at Nickel & Diner, where you’ll enjoy a modernized menu and old school diner vibes. Modeled after the luncheonettes of mid-century New York, the vinyl booths and countertops may bring back ‘50s nostalgia, but entree options like peppercorn-crusted filet mignon and Tandoori-spiced Australian lamb chops will keep you firmly in the present.
After dinner, walk over to Baby Grand, a tiny karaoke bar and art gallery. It's really small, so that's why we're recommending you check it out on a weeknight. They have a super long song list, offer great drinks, and occasionally even bring in acoustic-guitar accompaniment. That's fancy karaoke right there.
