Kobrick Coffee Co. in Meatpacking is a great place to get work done and have a drink. Not only do they have full coffee and cocktail programs, but they also combine the two on some drinks, like a gin and tonic with cold brew and a latte with Jameson. Know, though, that they dim the lights and start playing EDM around 8pm.

Del Posto is an excellent special occasion restaurant, located in a big space in Chelsea. Think of it as a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.
These days, Employees Only is not the hotspot it once was. But while the crowd might have lost a step, the cocktails have not, and it’s still packed with people every time we stop by.
What we have found at Blind Tiger is a New York City bar that actually has an extensive microwbrew selection AND excellent food. Unfortunately, the place gets very crowded at times.
