Cooper's Craft & Kitchen
There are two locations of Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen in the city. One’s in Chelsea, and the other is in the East Village - and, while the one in the East Village is technically almost the worst, we actually like the one Chelsea. It’s a little smaller, and it feels more like a real neighborhood spot. It’s also nice enough for date (if you grab a table in the back), and it opens at 11am every day. Plus, you’ll always find a lot of good beers on tap here, there’s a decent menu of bar foods, and this place is cleaner and nicer than your average pub.
