Girls Night Out Guide 2012: New York Restaurants
Dos Caminos Soho
475 W Broadway, New York, NY 10012 (map)
This Mexican haunt in Soho specializes in tasty eats with a swanky scene to match. Choose a booth inside or score a table on the spacious adjacent patio. Tacos, enchiladas and margaritas, along with a choice of 100-odd tequilas, will ensure a fab girls night out in New York.
Schiller’s Liquor Bar
131 Rivington St, New York, NY null (map)
This Lower East Side eatery is relatively casual, but it’s still uber-cool thanks to owner Keith McNally’s tried and true French bistro formula. Go for classic dishes such as rotisserie chicken or pork chop with roasted potatoes, and stay for the wine, which is broken down into three categories: cheap, decent and good.
55 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003 (map)
This slick East Village joint has all the ingredients for a perfect girls night out. It’s boisterous, with a solid list of specialty cocktails and vino, plus a menu of tasty treats such as mac ‘n cheese, tuna tartare, braised beef short ribs and one of the best burgers in town.
113 MacDougal St, New York, NY 10012 (map)
If Schiller’s is too low-key, get all dolled up and head to Keith McNally’s upscale steakhouse in the West Village, where the ambiance is great and the food is even better. Order the bacon-wrapped filet mignon and chase it with a chocolate souffle for the optimal dining experience. Then hit the front bar to mingle with good-looking executive types.
261 Moore St, Brooklyn, NY 11206
This foodie-approved hidden gem in Bushwick is great for groups, and with a no-reservations policy, you’ll have plenty of time to bond over wine at the bar before you are seated. Gourmet pizzas (the best around, seriously) are the perfect food over which to gossip, preferably from the comfort of the breezy backyard, weather permitting.
510 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014 (map)
Chef Julia Jaksic’s West Village hot spot may be better known for its cocktail list, but the food isn’t too shabby either. Gather your girls and indulge in plates of orecchiette (served with house-made Italian sausage, arugula and Parmesan), platters of cheese and charcuterie. After dinner, join the throngs of cocktail connoisseurs up front.
