drinks nr Madison Sq Park

  • j

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.

  1. I'd say Tabla (really excellent drinks that are really expensive) or Chicama. Sushi Samba also have good "drinks" but 10 people would be way too many for them...not really much of a "drinks" person myself so there may be more I'm missing.

      Try Chicama for festive drinks. Seviche's are good as well. FUN place!

        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.

      2. Try Follonico on 24th, just off 5th. I think it could handle 10 people. It is a very relaxed place with good food.
