This Restaurant Combines Italian And Spanish Cuisine Into One Great Meal
Have a decadent dinner, followed by drinks at an eclectic bar. Begin your evening with dinner at José Luis in the East Village, a restaurant that brings together two different cuisines: Italian and Spanish. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a giant pan of paella, bursting with seafood, alongside a sausage ragu over pappardelle with parmesan fondue. If the weather's nice, you'll especially want to snag a seat in their "secret garden" out back, under the cover of trees. It's a sweet little slice of the outdoors that is nothing but good vibes.
Afterward, get a nightcap at Mister Paradise, a bar that offers a touch of whimsy, from its mod leather booths to its cheekily named cocktails. Co-founder Will Wyatt, a former employee of NoMad Bar infuses upscale sophistication into low-end staples like the “blowjob shot.” Try the Crossfit Breakfast (aged rum, coconut, and coffee) or the Café Disco (rye whiskey, olive oil, and coffee).
