A Daytime Date
We've been busy selling our apartment and looking for a new one, but Daniel and I managed to sneak in a daytime date on Saturday. My Mom got us tickets for an off-Broadway play as an early present for our upcoming anniversary. Beforehand, we had lunch at Sfoglia, an Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side that I've wanted to try for a while. It was so nice to relax, share two appetizers, a few pastas (ravioli with Italian kale, ricotta, brown butter and walnuts was our favorite), have a little wine and some time to ourselves. We both liked Sfoglia a lot, but I found myself even more drawn to the restaurant's rustic decor and little splashes of sophistication. I loved the chandeliers, the mismatched tables, and the bar's green and pink swirly marble and squares of antique tin ceilings. Oh, and for parents with rambunctious little ones, I think daytime dates are the way to go. You don't have to worry about getting home too late and you won't be tired the next morning.
