    Hey everyone.

    Wife and I will be there for 3 days in late Jan. Looking for suggestions for great restaurants that aren’t stupid expensive. We go fairly regularly so are looking for some new ones.

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Sean

    I like both Mary’s Fish Camp and the Brown Derby on west fourth street.

    If you’re willing to go to Brooklyn there a place called lillo on Henry and Atlantic. Hole in the wall, no wine, super authentic Roman food.

    I’ll find a review in a sec

    Thanks for your suggestion. Did you mean the Black Derby on west fourth St?

    Oops. Yup. Actually, that place used to be called “The Place”.

    Not google friendly I guess, they changed it but I still think of it by the old name.

    Pikesville rye, big ice cube, bitters, orange peel, rocks glass. No vermouth (gross), no cherry.

    Panda, agreed.

    Manhattans must be made with citrus, preferably to butter the rim of the glass, but let’s agree to disagree on the subject of vermouth.

    It's not a Manhattan without vermouth. Red vermouth only, please.

    The drink you describe is a Rye Old-fashioned but without sugar. Sounds like a nice drink.

    Glad I'm not the only one that saw the title and expected mixology discussion.

    Punt e Mes and blood orange bitters is a nice combo that even vermouth haters can enjoy, Panda. Citrus oil around the rim and a spritz on top is a must of doing it this way.

    Head over to Brooklyn and hit up Taro Sushi. That place is my jam. They also have an Okinawan beer on draft called Orion! My fam is from Okinawa so it’s super 懐かしい for me.

    Either booze or restaurants work. Manhattans are one of my preferred winter drinks
