Adam and I don't often do dinner-out date nights, we much prefer to cuddle up at home with a bottle of wine and some music - which I suppose is it's own sort of date night. But Valentine's Day gave us the perfect opportunity to head out into Dalston for drinks and dinner.
Our first stop was a local bar which we've never been to before but which is officially my new favourite. If you're ever hovering between Dalston, London Fields and Hackney Downs I suggest you check out Pinch - it's a really tiny wine bar that reminded me so much of Brooklyn. And if you're ever there, tweet me and I'll pop over and join you! Any excuse to go back ;)
Next we bundled up and walked on over to Mercie Marie, it's not quite a pop-up and it's not quite a supper club, but it's the tiniest French restaurant serving delicious food and lots of it. Because it's Dalston it's located in some industrial building cooperative that only adds to the charm.
We considered heading back to Pinch after dinner and grabbing another drink, but we opted for home because Molly deserves company on Valentines Day too, after all.
