While We Were Young
This glamorous and exquisitely pink paradise invites cosmopolitan women to embrace their inner girly girl. Decked out with floral accents and marble tabletops, the vibe is flirty, yet sophisticated. In an era where social media fame can quickly alter the spirit of a spot, While We Were Young NYC generates hype while retaining its original elegance and ethos. The kitchen does dinner and brunch, both as affordable fixe-prix menus. Dinner is $45 for an appetizer and main; the same offer at brunch will set you back $39. The food is beautifully plated New American—think avocado toast, burrata, and chicken and kale waffles. Cocktails are a highlight, arriving in shades of lavender and light pink, and highlighting delicate flavors like rosemary, bourbon, and citrus. It’s no surprise customers can’t keep their meals off the ‘gram.
