The Dutch in SoHo is a good NYC restaurant for boozy brunch, celebrity sightings, girls dinner, lunch, small bites, spotting beautiful people and entertaining out of town friends. The bar area is also good for casual dates and first dates. Here are a few more tips:
Good For Boozy Brunch: It’s not necessarily a “party brunch” place but it’s a great place for too many cocktails on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: Jake Gyllenhaal can often be spotted entertaining various lady friends and pretty much any night is ripe for sightings of other hipster-esque celebs who call the neighborhood home (or temporary home).
Good For Girls’ Dinners: This place is super cute (and great for spying on super cute guys, particularly during the week). Grab a booth with 2 or 3 girlfriends and share the delicious small plates and a bottle of wine (or 2 or 3).
Good For Lunch: Open for lunch every day of the week, The Dutch is a great downtown place for lunch with hip business affiliates or a quick bite while shopping on your day off.
Good For First Dates and Casual Dates: If you sit at the bar, this is a good restaurant for casual conversation over drinks. If you’re up for small dishes, the seats in the bar area work as well, if you’re adventurous and choose to go for a full blown meal on the first date, you could definitely do worse than suggesting the rest of the dining area.
The Dutch’s Address: 131 Sullivan Street (at Prince St. – SoHo)
