The Bowery NYC Comfort Food
May 11, 2018
Named after one of the trendiest streets in New York City, The Bowery is a newly-opened nod to the Big Apple in Manila featuring beautifully presented hearty American fare and cool Manhattan-inspired cocktails. The latest in a line of New York-inspired venues popping up in Manila – a few of them presented by the same team behind The Bowery – the menu here is focused on American comfort food, and as a result is home to favorites like chicken and waffles, burgers, and mac n’ cheese, but rest assured, they are refined – yet still fun – versions featuring gourmet dashes peppered throughout. Brunch is a lively time at The Bowery, when the bar cranks out fantastic day-drinking dalliances like Bloody Marys featuring a homemade mix and the Cucumber Mash, which is a sweet sipper made of citrus vodka, cucumber, lime, in addition to a set of cocktails made with sparkling wine. Highlights of this bubbly group are the Strawberry Mint – strawberry puree, mint, and cava – and Bouquet Garni – lavender syrup, gin drizzle, cucumber, and cava . When the sun goes down, the bar at The Bowery comes to life as a lively crowd of locals and expats alike line up at the bar for fun and fresh made drinks as late as they would like, because The Bowery is open 24/7.
