Grab Your S.O.! (Candle)Lights Are On At These Two West Side Restos
you may take our iPhones
, you may take us out of our apartments
, but damn it, you won't take our liberty to dine out! Nope, in the last few days, we've learned that while our "need" for now-indisposed creature comforts (hot water: ahh, we hardly knew ye) has basically left the building, as it turns out, we're complete suckers when it comes to a candlelit dinner.
You too? Well, whether you're looking to rekindle (hardy har har) your fraught relationship with your boo, keep the love-fest flowing, or roll with your besties
, you're in luck: Meatpacking's best wood-burning oven will be firing-up tonight at Barrio 47
, serving up flame-broiled bites like strip steak, chicken, plus veg-friendy dishes too. Everything electric will be off, of course, but you can count on candles, candles, oh, and more candles. The same low-light setting will be happening at their Southward neighbor's place in Hudson Square. At 508 Gastrobrewery
, Chef Jen Hill's designed a short menu of her Italian-American fare to pair with Brewmaster Anderson's house-brewed dark ale, rye IPA, and our favorite stout in the city (coffee and mexican-chocolate!) — all on tap tonight. Cheers!Where
