NYC – 5/3/16 – Buvette, Employees Only, Untitled and Santina

An early evening stop for one of my favorite cocktails the Sidecar.  Incidentally one of my dad’s favorites as well so I suppose fitting that I am writing this on Father’s Day.

Employees Only
The last two times I attempted to go to Employees Only I couldn’t get in so for once got their prior to opening.  Within 5 minutes of doors every seat was taken.  And I basically just don’t get it.  These cocktails were good, but as no ingredients were measured, even before taking a sip I didn’t expect them to be anything great.

I seem to think about Untitled only when its warm enough to sit outside and not in other months so it sometimes falls off of my radar.  Like other USHG spots it is just incredibly solid.  No earth shattering dishes but just consistently really really good with excellent service.

Octopus, marinated radicchio, preserved lemon

Smoked arctic char mousse, fennel, rye toast

Pulled pork lettuce wraps, fried oyster, peanut miso
Cured fluke, kohlrabi, cara cara orange

Baby lettuce, spring onion, feta

Roasted and fried chicken, polenta, swiss chard
Cheese Plate

Sticky toffee cake, oranges, earl grey

And why not have a nitecap of one of my absolute favorite things in NYC?  Lamb tartare cecina.
