Sure, you and a friend could eat at Spicy Moon, a vegetarian Szechuan spot in the East Village, on a Wednesday night before your mid-week home improvement show marathon. But, it could also be a good starting point for the kind of night where you’ll inevitably leave something in an Uber you shouldn’t have called in the first place. The red darkroom lighting here makes feasting on dan dan noodles and dry pot with tofu feel like an intimate dinner party. And whatever happens afterwards is up to you.
