In the 1955 Disney Classic Lady and the Tramp, the titular pooches enjoy a romantic Italian dinner in a back alley set to the achingly lovely tune “Bella Notte.” The iconic scene, of course, culminates in the dogs inadvertently grabbing the same string of spaghetti and kissing. As Valentine’s Day approaches, couples are no doubt planning their own Lady and the Tramp moment—but since this is the East End, there’s no need for a makeshift Italian restaurant in a back alley. Check out the 2019 Best of the Best winners for Restaurant Atmosphere, on both forks. Always call ahead, as some restaurants may be closed for the season.
