Littler was closed from 2020 to early 2022, but this beloved bistro is, thankfully, back open with favorites like the crispy latkes benedict and Parker House mini loaves. The wood-paneled and deep-blue painted space sort of feels like you’re on a ship at sea, and it’s generally one of the best date spots in the city—just make sure to make a reservation ahead of time. Order the carrot cavatelli with harissa yogurt and the local flounder with corn and tomatoes, but save room for all of the desserts. Yes, we said all of them: if you can somehow choose between a corn pudding cake with peaches and a basque cheesecake with vanilla roasted figs, you’re much more decisive than us.
