UES Date Night
Donguri Restaurant309 E 83rd St, New York, NY 10028
Get dinner at this hole-in-the-wall, super-authentic japanese place. It's super quiet so make sure you're ready to make conversation the entire time you dine.
Pro tip: Get the salmon & salmon roe donburi.
The Penrose1590 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10028
Take a short walk and get a cocktail at one of the only decent spots on the Upper East side.
The Gilroy1561 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10028
If you couldn't get a table, or if you still feel up to hitting another bar, try the Gilroy a couple of blocks down the street. By now you should be good and drunk- so the rest of the night is up to you.
