A perfect first date in NYC, for me, would be a Sunday Date Day! We would meet up and grab brunch at Tipsy Parson [156 9th Ave] and then head up to Verde Square at the 72nd Street 1,2,3 station to watch one of the free concerts that they have around 1 PM on Sundays. After listening to some music for an hour or so, we would wander down to Soho and walk around the shops and then grab a cappuccino and avocado toast from Cafe Gitane on Mott Street. After relaxing for awhile, people watching and enjoying our time there, we would head for a few cocktails at the Top of the Standard at the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District. For dinner, we would head to my favorite Italian restaurant in the West Village, dell'anima for some prosecco and the bucatini all'arrabbiata. An amazing Sunday and an amazing first date!
