Despite posh vintage-inspired trappings (in the basement of the Sago Hotel), the space and shared-plates cuisine are intended to honor colonists and immigrants who helped build lower Manhattan. The inventive cocktail menu by Mikey Belasco (The Gilroy) is accessible enough for neophytes and trendy enough (offering ingredients like activated charcoal and lava salt) for those seeking the next big thing. THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Allegheny (bourbon, blackberry brandy, sherry, lemon juice, cherry bitters, prosecco and atomized cherry oil) is a rich-and-sweet concoction that transports you back in time. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: John Lamb was an NYC-born soldier who served under George Washington as an Artillery Colonel.
