Where we've featured it
There’s no wrong time to get a $1 pb&j sandwich, but there are some times when it’s especially right, including as an accompaniment to a to-go Sidecar, or after finishing oysters that come with pineapple mignonette. In other words, you should probably order one at this tropical-themed cocktail bar in the East Village.
When: Monday from 3-9pm
The Deal: A dozen oysters and any bottle of wine for $40
This East Village cocktail bar opened back in May, and now they’re offering a Monday night special that gets you a dozen oysters and any bottle of wine on the menu for $40. They also have a bunch of cocktail options, a $1 pb&j sandwich, and a pineapple mignonette that comes with the oysters. You can reserve a table ahead of time here.
If you walk the perimeter of Tompkins Square Park on a nice night, you’ll notice that getting drunk in the East Village is still very much a NYC pastime for a self-selected group. For all those looking to initiate themselves into said self-selected group (even just for a night), we’d suggest heading to this cocktail bar that opened in the spring of 2020 on East 6th Street between A and B. The Pineapple Club sticks pretty close to its tropical theme, which means you should come here expecting to drink colorful rum drinks (they use one of our favorite brands, Ten To One Rum). In addition to a greenhouse-like indoor area, Pineapple Club has a sidewalk patio that’s always busy on weekends.
There’s a new cocktail bar on East 6th Street between A and B called The Pineapple Club with a takeout window and things like a mezcal ginger margarita and a cheeseburger with fries. If you’re not wandering around the East Village, you can place your takeout and delivery order through their website here.
