This hidden gem stays true to the definition of speakeasy, situated through the door next to a bustling Japanese den regularly filled with college kids and East Village locals wolfing down ramen and okonomiyaki. Known for their creativity and mixology, it would be a shame not to try the Sweet Lorraine for its filtered tomato water confiture, japanese rice vodka, basil and okinawa sea salted goodness.
If Old Fashioneds or Sazeracs are more your thing, go for the Vieux Carre. A party of 2 is ideal, 3 is ok, 4 you're pushing it or expect a wait.
