Date spot of the summer.

Highest potential for a killer sunset photo involving the skyline and numerous New York City bridges.

Largest selection of interesting Spritzes.

Most dapper waiters. (Okay, this one’s a tie with The Grill.)

The amout of awards we’d award this spot is ridiculous. Indeed, it’s safe to say we’re half in love with Cecconi’s Dumbo: the newest in the international string of restaurants from the Soho House team, now open on the Brooklyn waterfront.

This is going to be the crown jewel of this summer for important dates, Sunday brunches, that one weekend your parents visit, whatever work outing you’d like to make that much better, etc. It’s a winner all around. Picture a never-ending labyrinth of green tufted velvet sofas, high archways adorned with flowing curtains, crystal chandeliers and waiters clad in matching white suits weaving their way through it all with platters of homemade cavatelli and strawberry rosé spritzes. We know, but it is that good. Check out some photos of it all right here.

Then there’s the patio, with cozy chairs and marble four-tops situated right on the promenade. They’ve got an aperitivo thing going on between 4 and 7, and that’s the place to do it. To drink, you’ll choose between honey pear ginger shrub bellinis and Mexican-inspired Negronis with chili-chocolate infused Campari. To nosh, you’ll have things like hamachi crudo with Sicilian pistachio and prosciutto-arugula pizzettes.

And come back soon for Sunday dinner, which’ll be a three-course prix-fixe served family-style. Then come back at the end of the year or so, because they’ll be adding a Soho House-style club above the space, aptly titled Dumbo House.

As if we need to tell you to come back.


TUESDAY BONUS: The swimwear label of the summer.
