For date night needs in Greenpoint, head to Alameda. It’s a cocktail bar that serves the kind of food that you could either share/pick at as you get to know one another, or actually sit down to eat for a full meal.

And for the atmosphere: there’s a big, beautiful u-shaped bar, good lighting, and plenty of tables for two.
