drinks nr Madison Sq Park
- jen kalb
Can anyone recommend a place that would be good for festive drinks and then a good dinner for a group of 8-10in the FLATIRON/Park Ave. South area ? Chicama? I Trulli? Im not a "drinks" person, so any advice would be welcome.
The Bread Bar at Tabla would be my first choice. They make this "Masala Mary," a homage to the bloody mary, but with Indian spices replacing worcester sauce and tabasco and a pickled onion instead of the traditional celery stalk -the best variation I've ever had. They do all sorts of other house drinks that match the successful fusion of its cuisine. I've only eaten upstairs (superb), but I hear the eats at the downstairs Bread Bar are very good, and a bit less expensive.
Try Follonico on 24th, just off 5th. I think it could handle 10 people. It is a very relaxed place with good food.
