Always our first FiDi bar recommendation, The Dead Rabbit would be a pretty cool spot in any neighborhood. It’s part cocktail bar, part restaurant, located across a few floors in an old building on Water Street. The space feels very old New York (like, 1700s old), and many of the cocktails are served in fancy little teacups. Did New York’s settlers drink whiskey out of teacups? Unclear, but we’ll take it. This place gets crowded, but it’s one of the best around.

An East Village steakhouse that doesn’t really feel like a steakhouse. And that’s a good thing.
