Of all the Blue Ribbon spots, this is the smallest and most neighborhood-y. It’s a tiny bar on quiet street in the West Village, and it’s perfect for a low-key drink (if you manage to get a seat). The whole place consists of one bar with around 10 seats and a little counter to the side. So don’t bring a group here, but do bring a date if you want to have a few drinks with the option of food. The menu has mostly small stuff like cheese, steak tartare, and a variety of toasts

Untitled at The Whitney
Dinner in an art museum, from Danny Meyer and Michael Anthony. Untitled at The Whitney is anything but boring.
Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.
