Fork in the Road’s Favorite Date Restaurants in New York City


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Date Restaurants.

“If you mean restaurants serving dates, I’d have to say Five Leaves, where the angels on horseback make a fine bar snack. If you mean a place to go on a date, I’ve have to say … Five Leaves.” –Robert Sietsema

“Locanda Vini e Olli.” –Chantal Martineau

“A tie between Café Katja and the Good Fork.” –Rebecca Marx

“The Little Owl. Cozy and charming.” –Lauren Shockey
