Just inside the unmarked entrance of this fancy hotel in the Met Life Tower, there’s a very nice and very mellow lobby bar. There are couches, chairs, some low coffee tables, and relaxed/upscale vibes. If you want to feel like a well-off business traveler or Christian Grey on a low-key night, this is the place. It’s quiet, discreet, and the cocktails are good. Linger with a drink, and if you’re hungry they do some small plates from the same kitchen as Clocktower.

The food at Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta is perfectly decent, even pretty damn good at times. But it's always just so damn crowded.
The NoMad Bar
Thanks to the prices, this casual(ish) bar in The NoMad hotel probably isn’t a place that you can afford to visit often. But when you do, eat dessert.
A long time Infatuation favorite. Blue Smoke is still serving some of the best BBQ you can find in NYC.

Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
Extra Virgin in the West Village is an excellent date spot and is as consistent as they come.
If you live near Walter Foods, you come here a lot. I guess if we lived near Walter Foods, we would too.

The Clocktower in the Edition Hotel is a Flatiron facsimile of a popular restaurant in London. And it works here just as well as it works over there.
