Kittery is a Maine-themed restaurant. We know this because Kittery is a city in Maine, and the bathroom wall here is covered in Maine license plates. There are also nautical flags and other maritime-related things on the walls, and they put lobster on their signature burger. The menu is pretty long, but mostly you should just come here to eat a lobster roll and some oysters while you have a drink on the patio. They do a Happy Hour from 5-7pm every day except Monday, when it’s Happy Hour all night.

The Lambs Club
It’s rare that we back this type of restaurant, but The Lambs Club is Infatuation approved for Pre-Theater Eats and Corporate Card use in Midtown.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
These days, Employees Only is not the hotspot it once was. But while the crowd might have lost a step, the cocktails have not, and it’s still packed with people every time we stop by.
Suggested by our writers
Claro is a great Oaxacan-inspired restaurant that’s even better when you’re sitting in the backyard.
The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club
Royal Palms is a great place to day drink while also doing an “activity.”
