Drinks before 15 East

9:15 reservations in front of Shimizu-san tomorrow night. Usually I meet for a drink beforehand at Toqueville (given 15 East's lack of bar), but am interested in a new idea.

Keep in mind it's a date and I'll have on some sort of ridiculously high heels.

Planning on Pouring Ribbons for post-sushi drinkies. (Will cab it though.)

      Agreed. And I believe you can make a rez...give 'em a call and find out, as they get really packed.

        Yes, they take reservations only on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays!

          Thank you both. Decided to go afterwards and made reservations. Will stick with Toqueville for pre-dinner in case his flight is delayed....

          Many thanks.

            Great news about the reservations! Good luck and let us know how it goes!

      2. There's a lot I don't like about Mesa, but they certainly have a nice array of margaritas (and the space is right there at the end of the block.)

        1. im not a huge fan but corkbuzz is on 13th between 5th and university. not the expert wine list that they proclaim but you could do worse for a glass of wine at their bar.
