Recommendation for LES drinks/appetizers?

FoodieNY Jan 13, 2007 07:22 PM

My husband and I are looking for a place to go tonight... preferably on the LES, Soho, or the village. We want someplace with good drinks (possibly mojitos) and appetizers. Suggestions?

    Freeman's would be a good place for mojitos and appetizers and also paladar, though I only had the mojitos and not the food there.

          um, fourth. the mojitos at paladar are fantastic.

          if you do end up there, and get appetizers, please report back. other than surprisingly good fries, and the chips they give at the bar, i haven't eaten there in ages, and would love to hear folks' impressions.

          a block away is 'inoteca, a wine bar with great small plates. the much-lauded truffled egg toast is fantastic.

                I'd second Jadis and add Bondi Beach for drinks & fish.

                  You probably went where you wanted already, but a good choice to remember would be Death and Company, 433 East 6th. Great cocktails and snacks.
