Date Ideas

I know your a very busy man (or woman)! So, I took the liberty to plan our romantic and fun evening (or day) in Manhattan.

Leave the guesswork and planning up to me (and your Executive Assistant). Being the social butterfly that I am; I know the best of NYC. Let me show you a slice of Ava’s New York City.

May I whet your appetite with some dinner (or lunch) suggestions?

Waverly Inn– located at 16 Bank street in The West Village. High-end American Comfort food with a swanky cocktail list and understated vibes

Marea– Chef Michael White brings a seaside high-end Italian flare to NYC. Since we can’t bask in the Italian sun all year and be in The Almalfi Coast. We can at least experience an evening of seaside Italian dining at Marea.

L’Artusi– Charming artisanal Italian restaurant located in the heart of The West Village. Home of one of my favorite Italian wine lists in the city. A hidden gem thats popular amongst true foodies and local New Yorkers.

Sushi Yasuda– Are you a sushi lover? Being the sushi fanatic that I am, let me introduce you to this traditional Japanese restaurant in Midtown East. Fresh fish is flown in daily and served in its purest form. Lets be adventurous, shall we?

Caviar Russe– Located on 538 Madison Ave. One of my favorite spots to dine in NYC. Don’t let the “Caviar” in the name fool you! Their tasting menu and classic’s menu is AMAZING. This place is very intimate and quaint. Great wine list and seafood. Not one to miss on your visit.

Gabriel Kreuther– A wonderful two Michelin Star dining experience at Gabriel Kreuther. When you step into the restaurant you feel like your in the Alsace region of France. Lets enjoy a good bottle of Burgundy along with the tasting menu. Located at 41 West 42nd street near Bryant Park.

Vancluse– Another Chef Michael White gem located in The Upper Eastside at 100 E 63rd street. Another gem for great French cuisine. Turns into, Omar’s Lounge, in the late night for us to enjoy an after dinner cocktail with New York’s Socialites (if we choose).

Fine & Rare– A hidden NYC gem where we can enjoy dinner and a show. Live Jazz nightly while we enjoy our mixologist cocktails, and the delicious American cuisine here. This place is not too loud or overwhelming at all. Perfect place to unwind after a long day with great food, music, and even better… the company

None of these restaurants appeal to you? Of course there is MORE where these came from.

I have a ton of other great suggestions for: restaurants, rooftop restaurants or lounges, live jazz clubs, discreet bars and swanky lounges around Manhattan (and Brooklyn if we choose). For discretion purposes and our privacy; I can share more choices upon our communication during booking.

Let me give you a taste of (My) New York City
