Nobody Told Me is a neighborhood cocktail spot on the Upper West Side where you can grab a drink with ingredients like pineapple-infused rum and coconut cashew milk. It’s a little room with tropical wallpaper and some big windows up front, and it’s ideal spot to grab a drink after work or read a book while drinking something alcoholic. And if you get hungry, there’s a full dinner menu with things like a chicory caesar salad and a fried chicken sandwich.
