Take a Trip Back in Time at This Historical Restaurant Before an Upscale Wine Experience
After the popularity of "Hamilton" on Broadway, the next best move is to eat at The Grange (it’s named after Alexander Hamilton’s home, which is within walking distance of the restaurant). With an open layout, a country-meets-urban vibe (see: the homey, kitchen counter-esque bar, exposed brick walls, chandeliers crafted out of rusted farm equipment), and vintage inspiration (thanks to the retro knick-knacks, like old typewriters and fire extinguishers), The Grange is like a home away from home with history. And their elevated New American menu is just the cherry on top.
Afterward, end the night at Anchor Wine Bar. This intimate, trattoria-style wine bar offers an exceptional lineup of Italian wines with a design aesthetic borrowed from an upscale wine cellar. With brick walls stacked with wine bottles, a slick subway tile-and-wood bar, rustic charm, and wall art displaying anchors as a nod to its name, this wine bar will do your romantic expectations proud. Even though it’s all about the wine here, their shared plates are phenomenal if you’re still hungry. We recommend the Carpaccio di Polpo (thin slices of octopus, pistachio, and rugola).
