A few years ago, you might have heard us talking about the “LPQ Party Roof.” There isn’t actually a place with that name, but it’s what we call the rooftop of the Le Pain Quotidien in the Flatiron District. Is this a full endorsement of LPQ as a dining destination? Definitely not. But if you go to the location on Broadway between 21st and 22nd, you can hang out on the rooftop patio and drink rosé. It’s hidden from the street and surprisingly pleasant. Plus, there’s free wifi.

I once saw a man at Shake Shack, dressed in a suit and setting a formal table. On the small metal table he placed a white tablecloth, fine silverware, a candle, and some flowers. For a moment, I was overcome with joy at the beautiful event that was about to unfold before me...this man was about to propose to a burger.
The Flatiron location of this Spanish tapas chain has a casual space that’s good for groups.

The food at Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta is perfectly decent, even pretty damn good at times. But it's always just so damn crowded.
