You’ve heard of it before, and now, it’s time for you and your person to make the pilgrimage to indulge in the New York specialty that is Xi’an Famous Foods. They hand-pull the noodles, giving them an unforgettably chewy texture. The noodles are only enhanced by the zest and flavor of ingredients, sauces, and recipes specific to the X’ian Province in China, where a Middle-Eastern influence packs a whole new level of taste to the cuisine. Ample cumin, cilantro, soy sauce, garlic, and spicy sauces grace these plates of hand-ripped noodles, hot or cold, served quick and tasty for you and your love to try it all out. Even though we’ve been hyping the noodles, don’t be afraid to try their house-made flatbread burgers—they’re famous for those, too.
After filling up on unbelievably good noodles at Xian’s, you’re going to want to walk—or in this case, bowl—it off with some good drinks for energy and lightheartedness at The Gutter. At this charming, retro bowling alley, you and your S.O. can hype up the competition and play each other without having to worry about anyone getting embarrassed—at only 8 lanes, this comfy joint manages to stay feeling cozy, vintage, and adult. Call in and reserve if you can’t be counted on for patience—the intimate 8-lane experience can work up a line. Trust us when we say some light bowling is the fun, innocent thing you needed to do again.
