Try The Seafood Linguine From 'Best Thing I Ever Ate' Before Throwing Back A Pickle Martini

Tree Bistro is a quaint, cozy eatery where you and your love will not only share a French meal, but also get a dose of much-needed greenery in this concrete jungle. The fries that come with the steak frites are perfectly crispy, you can’t forget to try the seafood linguini (fresh pasta, clams, mussels, creamy saffron sauce; featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate). Make sure to finish your meal with some beignets—these sinful fried confections come with an oreo inside.
After you’ve wined and dined each other, head over to craft beer and cocktail bar The Belfry, a dark and warm East Village nook that offers a pleasantly comfortable atmosphere to get a little boozy in. They’ve got a bunch of lovely cocktails, like the tasty Perfect Pear (naval strength gin, elderflower, lemon, pear) or the wonderfully autumnal Maple New York Sour (rye, lemon, maple syrup, red wine float), but the real kick is their spunky pickle focus. The menu spans everything from The Classic (Irish whiskey and the city’s best pickle brine) to the interesting BB-Cue Back (Bulleit bourbon followed by a smoky spicy brine). So, if you like pickles, or even if you don’t, this is the perfect eccentric twist to add some fun to your night.
