An Under-The-Radar Sushi Spot & Enligh Gastropub on the Upper East Side

The Upper East Side might bring to mind grandparents and Woody Allen, but, if you know where to go, this area is a gold mine for unique, unexpected, and memorable dates. Show your insider knowledge by booking two seats at the Omakase bar at Tanoshi, one of the best and most under-the-radar sushi spots in all of Manhattan. Located on York between 73rd and 74th under a nondescript yellow awning, this place is BYO, which helps make the $99 price tag per person much more palatable. A liquor store to your left and a bodega to your right, pick up your chosen libation and settle into a mouthwatering meal of the freshest sushi. If you get a reservation for the last seating at 9 p.m., you’ll most likely enjoy a drink or three with the chef.

After taking a trip to Japan, find yourself transported across the world with a five-minute walk around the corner. The definition of a British gastropub, Jones Wood Foundry offers a charming, pleasantly English after-dinner experience. Sit in one of the comfy bar stools or grab a table in the intimate back garden. Order a couple of pints and get your inner Duke and Duchess of Sussex on. Pro tip: Scotch eggs are a deliciously savory alternative to dessert.
