    Date Night Is...April 30, 2013
    This cozy hole in the wall is one of the best Date Night spots in the area – arguably in the city. But get there early or at an off time or it can get utterly packed.

    Cozy little hole in the wall that doesn't take reservations. Cocktails are excellent (the Dark & Stormy has fresh ginger in it), mussels were definitely a highlight. Came on a weeknight, not too busy

    Come for the ambience and wine. Stay for the cute ginger waiter. Return for the retro bathroom. Return again for the cute ginger waiter (obviously).

    Even if the kitchen's closed you can get some potato chips with Russian dressing. Michael the bartender will make you a drink if you tell him what you like. Cozy place. Crowd older than expected.

    There is no sign on the door, a gem in Tribeca. Get the avocado toast, salmon tartar and house pickled vegetables with a bottle of Riesling! Read more

    Restaurateur Matt Abramcyk’s cubbyhole hideout in a former seafarer’s inn serves retro cocktails and comfort food (meatballs; house-pickled vegetables).

    Dark and Stormy is one of the best cocktails in the city -- just watch out for the ginger. It's got a bite.

    Yes, the best dark'n'stormy around. In summer, grab a table outside and order your food as soon as you sit down, since it takes a while (one bunsen burner). Be sure to use the bathroom, it's swag.

    Max occupancy is 35...snagging a seat can be hard, and you have to order food if you sit at a table. Cool ambiance though with classic cocktails and some fun twists!

    The place is tiny and croweded but the perfect location for a snowy NYC night. Try the dark and stormy and enjoy the delicious good that the chef cranks out on induction burners at the bar! Read more

    Another one of my neighborhood favorites. Cozy and warm atmosphere, top notch cocktails. Have yet to try the food but they have a full menu!

    Swordfish was great. Lamb meatballs seemed dry and sorta burnt. Bathroom is awesome. I have never seen a sink like that (fold it down, then back up to drain).

    Great atmosphere in a intimate setting. Tasty cocktails and burger. A nice spot for a date or late lunch on the weekend.

    Kale bruschetta, chicken liver mousse, OYSTERS, and pretty much everything on the brunch menu. Also, very enjoyable tropical pimm's cup. Intimate environment.

    Try the Avocado Bruschetta - this was super good and spicy as cat shit...makes sense after looking at the pic, they only smothered the avocado with chili flakes

    Try the House Pickled Vegetables - this was my favorite of the night just bc i have a pickling fetish and care of nothing else when a good pickle is in front of me

    If you can find it... do go. It's everything that's in season, simple but SO good. Great ambiance. Not great for large groups (it's tiny).

    I love this place but tonight I was not impressed by the oysters and the condiments... Love the atmosphere anyway and I will be back soon.

    Hidden treasure. Order the Moscow Mule..the best I've had on both coasts. Order the Ricotta - it's fantastic! I have to say, love it at Colonie but it's even better here.

    Super discrete & hidden place. Steam punk style decor. Whimsical. Good food and drinks. Recommend the lobster poached eggs and salmon tartar.

    I would come here just for the burrata. It's that good. The cocktails are great, too.

    A rustic-chic gem of cocktail bar not much larger than a jewel box. Order a Negroni, and don’t be surprised if Robert DeNiro or Bradley Cooper wander in off for a night cap (001 212 226 2515).

    Excellent cocktails. For a teeny tiny kitchen smaller than my cutting board, it put out great appetizers and snacks!

    A cute and cozy restaurant bar hidden in Tribeca. Wonderful small plates and cocktails. Our tip: Check out the beautifully designed 40’s era bathroom.

    Tiny little hole in the Tribeca wall, with flashbulbs dancing outside with someone mega-famous walking by. Good manhattan, too.

    4 things to know: 1) order a Dark & Stormy 2) look around, conduits and other underground pieces are part of the charm 3) bathroom is an old elevator 4) go early or late. Peak times = bad experience

    It's amazing that this place serves food, the smallest kitchen I've ever seen (corner of the bar). Great spot for late-night drink and bites.

    This place has a small cocktail list, but the drinks are strong and it's surprisingly laid back for Tribeca.

    It used to be a horse stable, and the bathroom is an old elevator. Ship plans hang on the walls. The vintage cocktails are strong. Order a Negroni, like a fisherman would do after a big day's catch.

    Very small so hit it up off-peak to get the charm from it. Saturday afternoon is my favorite time.

    Cute that they cook everything on a small stove behind the bar. Good for lunch in the summer

    Stumbled in here by accident, ate some decent food, had some fancy cocktails. Tiny, dim lighting, and has a bathroom sink that requires flushing.

    Sit on the single chair to the right of the bar and feel AC on a hot day like you've never felt it before!

    Cocktails, sure, but don't sleep on the food. Cooked behind the bar on hot plates, but still pretty incredible,

    Check out the bathroom, made out of a turn-of-the-century elevator with a flip-down sink from a Depression-era railway car.

    If you're looking for a culinary adventure, look elsewhere. The entrees are bare: expect mains without sides. That being said, great ambiance and decor. Drinks > dinner

    Smith & Mills is one of my favorite places in the city. Better to go earlier in the evening (or on a weekend or on an off-night). Otherwise, the tiny spot is packed+loses charm

    The ginger in the dark and stormy was so finely minced that I had chunks of ginger in my mouth after each sip which was not pleasant
