The Vine

The Vine


The timeless hotel bar is always an attractive den to roost, especially when the spot is as good looking as the Vine, filled with books, outdoor perches and a fashionable chandelier. Bartenders Katie Stipe and Yana Volfson collaborated on the drinks menu, which is dominated by classics with a spin. After a hibiscus-spiked French 75, for example, spring for the Smokin’ Margarita with fennel pollen-citrus salt.

THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Few classics are associated with vodka, but here Stipe and Volfson give the spirit the spotlight thanks to a Moscow Mule with Russian Standard, lime, ginger and velvet falernum, as well as a Vesper in which Absolut Elyx shares the bill with Beefeater gin, Lillet Blanc and bergamot. A weekend-appropriate Bloody Mary is laden with horseradish.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
Chef Laurent Tourondel, formerly of BLT fame, has quite the pedigree. Make sure booze is accompanied by the likes of fried calamari with Calabrian chile-pepper aioli and pasta draped in hearty veal shoulder Bolognese.
