9 First Date Spots In Nolita

Just like bodegas and Starbucks, New York City has date-worthy restaurants on every block. We recently shared our 100 favorite restaurants in town for a date, but since this is no small island, we decided to break things down by neighborhood. After all, we could find 100 spots just in the East Village!

Since spring and summer are all about making changes and starting fresh, we suspect several of you potatoheads will be stepping out on more dates these next few months. We’re here for you in solidarity sister – you pick the place. Nolita is one of our favorite hoods in NYC – for shopping, drinking, eating, and the like.

Wine and tapas at the sexy and always on point Estela? Pizza at Rubirosa (one of the best pies in the city)? You can’t go wrong. Even if your date is not second or third date material, at least you’ve had a killer meal. Check out our favorite spots above…
