Kida NYC
369 Broome St., Little Italy
Husband-and-wife team Shinnosukae and Megumi Kida launched this intimate, six-seater salon in 2014, and it’s since become a favorite of an in-the-know clientele that includes models and celebs seeking a low-key hair fix. Cozy as it is, you’ll never feel rushed. In fact, the warm, attentive service, plus cool and comforting interior (brick walls, rustic-chic wood fixtures, and plenty of happy plants) make it a nice little getaway for both men and women. It somehow manages to be a barber shop and full-service women’s hair salon (color, cuts, blowouts all on offer), all while maintaining a homey, comfy vibe.
La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels
249 Centre St., Little Italy
This downtown wine bar is from the same team behind some of our favorite bar-restaurant spots in London and Paris. The concept is a cozy, candle-lit, living room-esque space with plush couches and decorative throw pillows, mod chairs, and marble-topped tables. The wine list is unsurprisingly very French, and impressive, plus there's a small but sufficient small-plate snack and dinner menu. In other words, this makes an excellent date spot.
