Looking for an Upper West Side foodie date for that won’t break the bank?
Eater just put out a list of five “Cheap-Ass Foodie Dates” — a drink, dinner, and dessert for about $20/person — and one of them involves three UWS locales.
The full list is available at EaterNY. The UWS “cheap-ass” date includes:
- Drinks at Fatty Crab: Monday-Friday happy hour specials include $6 mixed well drinks (including Malaysian margaritas), $5 bottles of Tsing Tao, and $3 PBR tallboys
- “Dinner” at Epicerie Boulud: DBGB Dog for $5.90
- Dessert at Momofuku Milk Bar: Most desserts are under $6
I put “dinner” in quotes because some people might consider a hot dog/sausage a stretch, no matter how fancy it might be. That said, if someone thinks they’re too good for a Boulud hot dog, they probably also think they’re too good for a $20 date.
I really like the idea of mixing and matching various UWS spots to put together a non-traditional night out on the cheap. If anyone else has thoughts on different neighborhood places that would work for this sort of thing, drop me a line at alerts [at] myupperwest.com or sound-off at facebook.com/MyUpperWest.
I’m hoping to get comments back up and running by early next week!
