Smoke & Mirrors

Jul 2, 2019

WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT what you get at this rooftop bar with smashing sunset skyline views. New head bartender Jorge Conde conjures up flavor illusions such as a clear Bloody Mary and his weirdly delicious Dali’s Self Portrait, which completely befuddles your mind about the typical Manhattan, as he makes his twist on it with smoky-bacon fat, artichoke and swirls of rosemary smoke added to a vermouth and whiskey base. Come when you’re feeling particularly adventurous.
