Christmas lights, nachos, and tequila... I know, I know, I don't need to write anything else, but this place is top of my list. Also, with a name like Ghost Donkey, I'm both horrified and fascinated. Three thumbs up.
Let's be honest, when I'm in NYC I don't make it out to Brooklyn often enough, the yellow couches and this view help :) In the new William Vale hotel, the Westlight offers stunning skyline views. The burger is pretty fantastic too.
A hidden underground Sake Bar in the East Village, welcome to Decibel. Favorite sake bar in the city? Check? Only sake bar in the city I really know? Also check. This one is so good though, I haven't bothered to find another!
