It’s been a while since I’ve done a restaurant review in Manhattan (not for a lack of eating I might add, but possibly just laziness). In any case, a couple of weeks back (three to be precise), hubs and I did date night at Bacchanal, the newly opened restaurant inside the Quin Hotel on the Bowery. I left it up to him to choose the spot (sometimes a girl’s gotta let her man take charge! What can I say, it makes them happy). Result? Super impressed with hubby’s selection.
Let me just start by saying, this is a GREAT date spot! The food by Scott Bryan (formerly of Apiary), certainly did not disappoint. Both hubs and I opted for seafood (I may or may not have been on my strictly no-carbs kick, which didn’t last for very long). Though I must say that, for me personally – it was the cocktails that stood out (which doesn’t surprise me in the least, since some of these folks are also the brainchild behind The Dead Rabbit).
My all-time favorite was the Point Blank, with chivas regal, dolin blanc, St. Germain, and lemon bitters. Yum! Take a look and judge for yourself!! (P.S. For a lo-down of cocktails, check out Fork and Shaker here). You won’t be disappointed.
Now the only thing I need to get on is penciling in another date night, pronto!
