This hip little West Village spot might err on the small side with just four small stools at the bar - but this only adds to its romantic charm. It's an understated white walled kind of space where the focus is very much on good things to eat and drink.

This hip little West Village spot might err on the small side with just four small stools at the bar – but this only adds to its romantic charm. It’s an understated white walled kind of space where the focus is very much on good things to eat and drink. The bartender used to work at the acclaimed Daniel, one of the city’s best restaurants, so you know you’re in for a treat. The seasonal list includes the Tete de Mule, a mix of gin, ginger and green tea, carbonated in the bottle. The Betty Draper is a suitably cool blend of gin, Calvados, sherry and apple juice and the potent V.I.C pairs jalapeno-infused mezcal with tequila, vermouth and yellow Chartreuse. We’re all kinds of excited about the Bartender’s Breakfast, a truly decadent-sounding blend of brandy, cognac, Nutella and coconut milk with a whole egg thrown in for good measure. There’s a small but well-chosen range of wines by the glass, including a couple of sparklers, and the genuinely tempting food menu encompasses various cheeses and charcuterie, focusing on quality, seasonal ingredients presented with care. We love the sound of the duck sausage with kale and truffle and the autumnal game terrine also sounds the business. Photography by: Thomas Schauer Studio
