Raines Law Room is a low-key, intimate secret lounge serving perfectly prepared classic cocktails courtesy of rad mixologists. The Flatiron based speakeasy lives behind a discrete black door helmed by a doorman with a clipboard. Upon entering, you’re greeted with velvet couches, seductive dim lighting and your very own buzzer that’s used to call the waitress. There’s an outdoor courtyard sans buzzers but it’s cool during the warm weather months. Raines Law Room is perfect for date night, cocktails with the girls/guys or for anyone that just wants a damn good drink at a sexy spot! There’s definitely a high level of privacy here because the waitress only comes when she’s summoned by the buzzer!

I happen to be in Murray Hill a few nights ago so I decided to roll by Inoteca. It’s the perfect spot for a glass of wine and a few small bites. I must warn you though, it’s always crowded and pretty loud. I have to say- I definitely prefer the LES outpost and the spot that started it all, Ino! Nevertheless, it’s a good option if you’re in the area.

Carbs are in full effect at this Italian wine bar delivering solid pasta dishes, paninis, bruschette, salads, meats and cheese.

Sant Ambroeus in the West Village has always been a lunch time go-to spot for me especially on a nice day because of the great outdoor seating. You can count on them for solid pasta dishes, yummy sweets (gelato and pastries), a perfect espresso and a touch of Italian glamour in a casual setting – and the same holds true for the original Upper East Side location. I recently went there for lunch following a morning at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum where I saw breathtaking pieces from the Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry exhibit.
