Our September Date Nights

Fall is here. Ready or not. For our September date nights we decided to check out some new (to us) restaurants in Long Island City. We often venture into Manhattan for date night, but we enjoyed changing things up a bit this month. It was a bonus that we were able to take advantage of the last bit of nice weather as we walked to and from the tasty locations.

I went with a burger spot - Petey's. We both liked the burgers, but we definitely should have split fries because the portion was massive. The restaurant itself is small, but did have a TV playing movies which was kinda different. We'd likely opt for delivery next time, but certainly plan to add it into our restaurant rotation.

Chris selected a Thai restaurant - Gaw Gai. It is very close to our apartment, but we hadn't ever taken the time to stop in. There are only a couple of tables in the restaurant so I think it has mostly take out service, but we liked it. The food is a bit spicier than some of the Thai restaurants we frequent in Manhattan, but I was able to handle it without issue. Glad we found this local spot!

Do you have any favorite restaurants in your neighborhood?

  1. So yum! I'm glad you were able to get out and enjoy some weather and some food! I kind of hate when a place gives you a massive size of fries because I have no self-control and eat them all and then feel sick. Ha!
