Selena Rosa Mexicana
Easily one of the best Mexican and Southwestern restaurants on the upper east side. Selena’s margaritas, served in tall glasses are strong as they are sweet packed with a punch that’ll keep you wanting more. Not only is the food here delicious but they also have seating out front for those perfect weather appropriate days. If you love a cozy, dimly lit setting with servers who are as warm as the atmosphere, bring bae here for an intimate dinner. You’re welcome!

Escape The Room
You’ve probably been thinking your significant other has been doing all the right things. No ones perfect, but still no red flags just yet. I want you to bring them to Escape the Room so you can see their “problem solving under pressure,” skills in action. You never know someone until you’ve seen them frustrated, annoyed or angry! There are different locations all over the city and some rooms are harder than others. Consider escape the room the perfect after dinner treat. For tickets and more info visit Escape the Room NYC.
Claw Daddy is one hell of a seafood restaurant and the amount of food you get for the price is worth every dollar. This isn’t about the food though, this is about their adult sized caprisun style cocktails. Everyday from 3 p.m.to 7:30 p.m. you can get these adult caprisuns for $7. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, all made with their house vodka and all delicious.
