At this point, The Mermaid Inn is pretty much synonymous with solid, not trying-too-hard first date spot. There are lots of small plate options, plenty of drinks to choose from, and a happy hour deal that means you can afford to get a few of both. But take our word for it: you probably don’t look as good eating an oyster as you think you do.

The Mermaid Inn review image

A staple in the Infatuation playbook since back in 2003 when we were standing in line outside of terrible Manhattan night clubs and listening to nothing but Brand New and 50 Cent. The fish here is always fresh and fantastic, and the lobster roll is very solid.

J.G. Melon is a classic burger-and-a-beer spot with a few locations in NYC, including this one on the Upper West Side.
