Ghost Donkey is a bar in Noho that specializes in tequila and mezcal. It’s a pretty small space, but there are a few big couches that you can snag if you get there early enough. Overall, however, this isn’t the best place for group. Come with a few friends, or sit alone at the bar and stare at all the red lights dangling from the ceiling. They’re magnificent. The cocktails are Mexican-themed, and, if you’re hungry, they do a variety of nachos. One kind has black truffles.

Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
Jacobs Pickles is great if you need a spot for drinks or an Upper West Side dinner meetup with someone you know will embrace the heavy bar food. But it’s not a restaurant with traveling for.
