PERK ALERT

Drinks for Two at a Rooftop Paradise

You and a companion have four cocktails waiting at the massive rooftop lounge, Haven. (Consider it a date.) We’re also inviting you to an epic mixology battle at The Plaza—inside The Todd English Food Hall. Finally, for $45, you and a date are getting an Italian feast with sparkling white wine at SD26. Perfection.

SAY UNCLE

Thai from a Couple of Per Se Vets

Sometimes, when a man and a woman love each other very much... and they both worked at Per Se... they get married and open a Thai place. Like this place, where you’re coming for curried hanger steak, grilled blowfish tail and tamarind shandies. It’s a beautiful thing.

LODE UP

Everything from Loden Dager, Way Less

Here’s what you do with a gray day. You say to it, “Check out my flawless yellow button-down and bright-blue chinos.” But before you can do that, you’re going to get those things from the color geniuses at Loden Dager. Because that’s how owning clothes works.

Apr 11, noon-6pm, Loden Dager, 147 W 29th St (between 6th and 7th), 212-502-1824

UD - Warby Parker Goes Brick-and-Mortar

THIS MEANS WARB

Warby Parker Goes Brick-and-Mortar

Your world’s about to get real sunny for a few months. It’s great. It’s also an excuse for you to check out the library-like new SoHo digs of the eyeglass virtuosos at Warby Parker. There’s a green-screen photo booth so you can accurately tell how your tortoiseshells will look. Which was impossible before.

Opens Apr 13, Warby Parker, 121 Greene St (near Prince), 646-568-3720

BEACHES

It’s a Beach on a Roof. And It’s Back.

Ah, the rooftop beach. Ever since you learned it was a thing, you’ve been a fan. And the Dream Downtown is bringing theirs back with promises of ceviche, 10-layer burgers, boozy slushies and imported sand. Which is far superior to domestic sand.
411:
Reopens Apr 16, The Beach at Dream Downtown, 355 W 16th St (near 9th), 212-229-2336
UD - A Tex-Mex Masterpiece in Chelsea

DUDE, WHERE’S MY CARNE

A Tex-Mex Masterpiece in Chelsea

Look us in the eye and tell us you don’t want smoked-pork-shoulder burritos right now. You can’t do it. This place puts Texas barbecue on tortillas, then gives it to you to eat. They’ve also got beer cocktails and burnt-ends-brisket chili. So it sounds like they pretty much nailed chili.
411:
Opens Apr 16, Tres Carnes, 688 6th Ave (at 22nd), 212-989-8737, see the menu
