Next week, I want a GOOD martini.
I have suggestions so far of: Temple and Clementine.
Any comments on the above two or does anyone have even better altenatives? Way downtown is where we'll be.
Grazie in advance.
re: stephen kaye
My boyfriend recently visited Temple Bar with a
colleague for a couple of post-work martinis, and I
can honestly report that this beer-loving Englishman
(my boyfriend) came home drunker than I have ever seen
him in four years, with all of his fingernails painted
in sparkly nail polish. The colleague got equally
drunk, was cut off at the bar, then attempted to bike
home but fell off and so chained the bike somewhere
and has not since found it, nor does he remember
anything at all about the evening. All this from four
martinis. I post this as a warning and a
recommendation: the martini's are fantastic, but very
very large -- proceed with caution.
Temple is as the kids would say the bomb place for a
martini. other places of note include the greatest bar
on earth in the world trade center which is a little
too touristy for me and kastro on 5th st (i think) in
the east village here you'll find no tourists but alot
of people who seem to have the sniffels and go to the
bathroom alot (wink, wink)
