Address: 17 Barrow St.

Paranormal activity isn't often a precursor to romance, but at classic NYC eatery One If by Land, Two If by Sea, you can enjoy both in tandem. The restaurant was once the carriage house of Alexander Hamilton and his daughter Theodosia, and their spirits still creep around the house. Staff members and diners alike have reported strange incidents, including lights flickering, patrons being shoved by spirits, and the earrings of women sitting at the bar repeatedly disappearing. The staff claims the spirits are benevolent, but if we're paying $20 for a bowl of soup, we'd prefer it not come with a side of poltergeist.
