Restaurants Perfect For Girls' Night Out

our suggestions

  1. L'Artusi


    228 W. 10th St., West Village, NY 10014

    An updated review for an absolute classic. It hardly gets better than L’Artusi, and that’s been the case for a long time.

  2. Narcissa


    21 Cooper Square, East Village, NY 10005

    We are often asked the following question: “What’s the hottest restaurant in New York City right now?” Then there is almost always the following caveat: “The food doesn’t have to be great.” And another caveat: “I’m not asking for me. My sister’s boyfriend is a Hollywood lawyer and he’s in town looking for a good […]

  3. Empellon Cocina

    Empellon Cocina

    105 1st Ave., East Village, NY 10003

    We are pretty tough on Mexican food in this city. Only two restaurants have a rating of over 8.0 on Immaculate Infatuation, one being La Esquina, which is probably more about the experience than it is the food. To us, putting a couple of fancy tacos on a menu and charging twenty bucks doesn’t make […]

  4. Barbuto


    775 Washington St., West Village, NY 10014

    A trendy spot, but for a more sedate group…not the hair gel and high heels crowd that you find a few blocks north in the meatpacking district. Simple food, top quality ingredients, a good wine and beer list – all the makings of an Immaculate Infatuation mainstay.

  5. Prima


    58 E. 1st St, East Village, NY 10003

    We’ve always been fans of The Summit Bar, however we never reviewed it because the food menu is tiny and the door/bouncer/crowd scenario most nights is unbearable. Thankfully, the kings of cocktail decided it was time to add something a little more gastronomic to their resume. We love a pleasant surprise and that’s exactly what […]

  6. ABC Kitchen

    ABC Kitchen

    35 East 18th St., Flatiron, NY 10003

    Jean-Georges kills it. We know this. The dude is one of the most inventive and creative chefs that’s ever lived. The locavore/farm to table movement that has recently taken hold of the New York dining scene is nothing new to J.G. – he’s been quietly playing that game for decades. That’s why it’s no surprise […]

    Shalom Japan

    310 S 4th St., Williamsburg, NY 11211

    Shalom Japan is what happens when a pair of chefs from different backgrounds (Japanese and Jewish) meet, fall in love, and start making food instead of babies. And being that the Jews and Japanese are responsible for some of our favorite food on the planet, this is a restaurant we’ve been looking forward to trying […]

  8. ABC Cocina

    ABC Cocina

    38 E. 19th St., Flatiron, NY 10003

    2013 has been a good year for hyped restaurant openings. We’ve already thrown our stamp of approval Carbone and Lafayette‘s way, and the hits just keep on coming. ABC Cocina is Jean-George’s second spot inside ABC Carpet and Home, and picks right where ABC Kitchen left off. Like its predecessor/older brother who they share space […]

  9. Bar Bolonat

    Bar Bolonat

    611 Hudson St., West Village, NY 10014

    We love it when we find a restaurant with more than just a few signature dishes that make it worthwhile. Our favorite places are the ones in which you can just close your eyes and blindly point to an item on the menu, knowing that something good is going to end up on your table. […]

  10. Yerba Buena Perry

    Yerba Buena Perry

    One Perry St., West Village, NY 10014

    A combination of everything that’s right about Latin American food, Yerba Buena Perry’s menu reads like an Infatuation wet dream. Pork belly arepas, chorizo, fish tacos, ceviches, short ribs and dry aged steaks. This is one of our favorite spots in town.
