D.O.C feels like a Sardinian bed and breakfast where the elderly owner smiles and nods as you taste the house wine and local cheeses. It’s a very cozy Italian wine bar that’s great for a low-key date in Williamsburg. The big Italian wine list has affordable options by the glass and carafe, and there’s a large selection of cheeses and charcuterie along with some housemade pastas.

A little Italian cafe and sandwich shop on the Upper East Side near Central Park. We love the sandwiches, but hate how much they cost.
Suggested by our writers
Off the main stretch in Williamsburg is Aurora - a place charming enough for a First/Early in the Game Date.
Bar Belly is a cocktail and oyster bar on the Lower East Side that’s an ideal first date spot.
Antica Pesa is both crazy and endearing, and a far cry from some of the other restaurants around here that hand you some food and a paper napkin and then wait for you to leave.
