Not everyone has time for a sit down lunch, so head over to Pinky’s Space! This quirky little take away restaurant serves a unique blend of Southern and French food – drawing inspiration from both cuisines. A smile is sure to cross your face when you enter this funky 80s themed joint and receive your pink box full of wonderful food. The hot dish here is Banjo’s Braised Brisket, served with au jus and orange shallot marmalade.

Deux Amis is the place to be for a dinner. With a low lit, romantic atmosphere, beautiful outdoor seating options, and its location in Midtown East, it is the prime spot for a night out. We recommend starting off the night with their Escargot – classically prepared with olive oil, parsley, and garlic. For dinner; the Vol Au Vent – a shrimp puff pastry served with mushrooms and a cream sauce. And if you are feeling lavish, finish off the night with a glass of their Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne.
