Ichabod’s is a little generic, but in a comforting sort of way. It’s a little spot on Irving Place with exposed brick, low ceilings, and candles on every table - and you’re here to eat straightforward dishes like a kale caesar and brick chicken. It doesn’t get too insanely busy on weekends, so it makes for a good backup plan for when you wake up from a nap on a Saturday night and realize you have a date in an hour that you forgot to plan.

Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
At Feast, you’re going to have a meal meant to be shared amongst friends. You sit down and they load up your table, Thanksgiving style. We love their approach, but wish there were fewer rules and restrictions.
