    Fantastic NYC dinner: Long Island Duck, Negroni Bianco and Banana Bread. Tiny place (make a reservation) and worth every cent.

    Tiny, intimate space with good cocktails and wines by the glass. I love that it's not very busy even on weekend nights, probably due to the fact that it's tucked away from the main drag.

    Love the atmosphere at this tiny cocktail bar. If you come before 7pm on a weekday, they have excellent happy hour specials

    Perfect date spot - sit at the small booth in the window and sip cocktails together.

    Incredible food and an incredible, intimate experience. From the cocktails to the main entrees, this was one of the best meals I've had in NYC. I suggest this for a special occasion like a birthday.

    The roasted half lobster with sauce Americaine and creamy grits at Wallflower changed our mind about grits in general. It was decadent and totally amazing. Read more

    In the winter they have a special cocktail called the Black Tie. If you dig bourbon you'll dig this.

    Wallflower is a tiny French bistro fronted by a cocktail bar. Garnished with streaks of Angostura, curling citrus peels or thick layers of foam, the drinks are all miniature works of art. Read more

    New brunch menu. Lobster & grits 👌. Savory morning bun. Good drinks to boot. It's a neighborhood gem for good reason.

    For spicy cocktails, Shush >> Cornelia. Scallops are excellent and I don't even like scallops. Skip the tuna tartare: too much sesame oil.

    The Stockholm syndrome cocktail is amazing - citrusy, not sweet, kind of savory. The waitress called it funky lemonade

    Hidden gem. One of my favorite cocktail bars in West Village. Delicious seasonal french plates available. Cozy, intimate, chic. Recommend for dates or catching up with a friend.

    So happy to find this gem! The cocktails are perfectly balanced. Ask the bartender to surprise you with an off the menu drink. Have to come back for the food.

    Small spot with an even tinier kitchen. Make reservations for dinner or hope to get lucky for one of the four seats at the bar. Get the New Fashioned cocktail (includes maple syrup).

    Ask Xavier for his 'off the menu' cocktails once you have tried most of the ones on the menu. He will not disappoint.

    Food is good, but the cocktails are the highlight. Better for apps and drinks than a full dinner.

    Xavier is a gem. Ask him for a cocktail reco and you can't go wrong. Do the prix fixe and you'll be stuffed. Don't miss the barley risotto, which is much lighter than a normal risotto. Sit outside.

    Tapas. The mixologist made me one of the best drinks EVER here. I have no idea what it was, but it was spicy and incredible. Small spot, will be more difficult with large groups.

    If you're having dinner, the lobster dish is great. Get a chèvre course to start and a taste from the raw bar. The waiters had good recs so I'd recommend enlisting their help too.

    Cute cocktail bar, I would make a reservation unless you prefer to sit at the bar. They make a really great smokey cocktail that is a must try for the whiskey lover.

    The Sho Sho (made with carrots, ginger, sherry) and the Tete de Mule (gin, ginger syrup, carbonated mint-and-green-tea water) are light but divine cocktails. Xavier is a phenomenal bartender!
