Ideas for tonight - appetizer at bar then takeout

uncledunkel | Dec 3, 2013 05:13 AM

So my wife and I are doing a mini date night tonight. We plan to grab a quick drink and small bite somewhere and then pickup takeout somewhere a short walk away for us and parents. Location: I am traveling from Grand Central to Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. Great if both places are near GC, but I am okay making one stop on the subway. The bar should have good food and mocktails. The takeout needs to be good, parents prefer ethnic, not fried; but open to non-ethnic too. Takeout needs to handle ~40 minute commute home. First bar thoughts in my mind are: Eleven Madison Park, NoMad, PDT, Death & Co. Takeout #1 choice would be Mission Chinese if they were open. Since they are not, thought of Hunan Manor & Zabb Elee jump out to me - benn to and like both. Other ideas? Obviously PDT and Zabb Elee are close to each other and on my list, so they are a good combo, but wanted to see if you all could come up with a better one. Any good takeout spots near EMP/NoMad? Any good bar options near Hunan Manor?
