1. Sofreh

"I don't know of a lot of Persian restaurants in the city, but Sofreh is a banger. Beautiful ambiance, and flavors I don't encounter often. Also...dope cocktails." Prospect Heights

2. Oxalis

"I dig this Prospect Heights joint because the menu changes pretty regularly, but it's always interesting, unexpected and so, so damn tasty. Going with the Carte Blanche menu could spark some interesting conversation. Prospect Heights 

3. Claro

"This spot is located in Gowanus. Great ambiance and laid back staff serving up some really interesting Oaxacan cuisine and the backyard is magic." Gowanus

4. Shuko

"This is a place for a flex, or a special occasion, or a Tuesday (if you got it like that) It's fancy, but with a super intimate feel, with some of the best sushi in the city. Feels like a secret, but it's totally not. It's popular as hell." Greenwich Village

5. Locanda Vini e olii

This is a great spot, on a tree-lined street, in the middle of a bunch of gorgeous brownstones in Clinton Hill with a very friendly, unfussy vibe. Great place to start a night out.  And the food is amazing." Clinton Hill
