Enjoy a glass of vino at Musette Wine Bar in Harlem

Go on. You deserve it. Savor that Pinot after a trying week and take in the rustic beauty of Musette Wine Bar in the heart of Harlem. We recommend ordering a glass of their Cabernet Franc, imported from Loire Valley, France. In addition to an abundance of French wines and beer, guests can look forward to a French food menu perfect for pairing. From cheese and charcuterie boards to jambon beurre sandwiches, Musette Wine Bar is as much of a bistro as it is a bar. The rustic and charming-looking space has wood adorning almost every corner, giving it a cozy, intimate feel. Be sure to bring a date and your best Sommelier impression. Find Musette Wine Bar at 420 Malcolm X Blvd.

Tasty sandwiches with a twist? Welcome to Little Kirin

Little Kirin is an Asian-inspired sandwich shop in the East Village, serving unique comfort food with fresh ingredients daily. Reviews have been stellar for this trendy eatery, and many locals love their well-seasoned and beef-packed pho short rib sandwich. Pro tip: dip the pho short rib sandwich in the pho broth for the whole experience. Our favorite is their Salmon Katsu PO' Boy, perfectly cooked with panko crumbs added, which gives it a nice crunch. A fried mushroom sandwich is available for those who don’t eat meat. You can also build your own breakfast sandwich with various toppings like spam, egg, cheese, and more on a toasted brioche bun. Come to Little Kirin for just about any occasion and enjoy their unique sandwiches at 81 St Marks Pl between 2nd Ave and 1st Ave.

Legendary Pizza Institution Di Fara Pizza Invites you for a Slice at South Street

The legend continues. In 1965, Domenico De Marco (call him Dom) opened Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn after emigrating from the Province of Caserta in Italy. Little did he know that he would cement his Di Fara Pizza as one of the best pizzeria spots in New York, quite the feat. Now, locals look forward to Dom’s undeniable pizza in South Street Seaport, where you can enjoy a tasty slice and a riverfront view. What makes Dom’s pizza so irresistible? Each pizza pie is handcrafted by the master, Dom, who spent over 53 years perfecting his pizza. At 82, he is still cooking and shows no signs of slowing down. Grab the much-lauded plain slice with their signature chopped basil sprinkled on top for $5, and you’ll be in a pizza heaven. Save us a slice when you visit Di Fara Pizza at 108 South Street. The other two locations are in Midwood and Staten Island. The South Street location is open Monday to Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
