ZZ’s Clam Bar

WHY HERE: This tiny, pricey bar was instantly famous the moment it opened, due its charm, excellent food (think uni toast and tuna carpaccio) and near-perfect drinks menu curated by bar vet Thomas Waugh. Elaborate tropical-themed drinks are named for specific aromatic or flavor notes, like the Dill (which also includes rye, aquavit and cucumber).

WHY NOW: Reservations (made online) are required, and prices are high, but sometimes you need a splurge for food and drink that’s this transcendent.
