An extensive cocktail list includes fun concoctions featuring American bourbons and whiskeys, as well as classic cocktails, craft beers (including American craft beers) and a curated list of wines. Cocktails include the elegant espresso martini and cosmopolitan, as well as house tipples like Americano IPA (Bonanto Aperitivo, Antica Formula and Camden Pale Ale) and Lychee & Blueberry Daisy (Absolut Vodka, rosé wine, lychee, lemon and blueberries).


Dishes draw inspiration from The Big Apple’s restaurant scene, with a lengthy sandwich menu offered during lunchtime (think po’boys, Reubens, Philly cheesesteaks and meatball subs) and all-day options like tasty pizzas, burgers and salads. On weekends, enjoy a fun brunch with classics like eggs Benedict, French toast and waffles, as well as bottomless pizza and picantés on Saturdays.

Natural light bathes the space thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a warm and welcoming environment for all, including large parties for those extra-special celebrations.
