The Cannibal Liquor House is the bar/restaurant from the people behind The Cannibal, and it’s one of the best places to get a nice cocktail in the Murray Hill/Kips Bay area. Granted, there aren’t that many great bars in the area - so that might not be as impressive as it sounds. Still, if you need a good tiki drink or a whiskey cocktail called a “Truffle Shuffle,” and you happen to in East Thirties, we recommend this place. You can also grab dinner here (it’s sort of a restaurant), although the menu is mostly bar foods. They have burgers, wings, calamari, and brussels sprouts. There’s a dining room in back, but stay up front if you want to grab a few quick drinks and make a quick exit.

If you end up at Rider, you'll probably enjoy it. But it doesn't need to go on your Brooklyn must-hit list.
Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.
