The Narrows is one of our all-around favorite spots in Bushwick thanks to excellent cocktails, a great back patio, and an intimate vibe. This is a great date spot - there’s a short but solid menu here, or you can make this place the second stop on a one-two punch evening (Roberta’s, Momo Sushi Shack, Tutu’s, and Bunna are all close by).
