What we’re FALLing for: Excited about food and beer

fallmenu2016It may not feel like autumn just yet, but we’re super excited with the new breweries that are opening up in the region. We always have a great selection of rotating taps, and this is the season for fest beers, ciders on draft (be sure to check out our programming for next month’s Cider Week NYC) and new offerings from some recent launches:

  • Our new favorite cider comes from Blackduck Cidery (we currently have their Dry Hopped cider on draft)
  • Black Hog Brewing from Connecticut (you gotta try their Milk Stout on nitro! perfect for fall)
  • Hofstetten Hochzeitsbier von 1810 (have a little Oktoberfest with this paired to something from our fall farmers market menu – pictured at right)
  • Two brews from Jeff O’Neil’s new venture Industrial Arts
  • We always offer something from Barrier Brewing
  • Plus city beers from Other Half, LIC Beer Project and Interboro, among others

Sit at the bar or grab a table and enjoy the bounty of this fall season!

Kick off Fall with Taste of East Village!

tasteofeastvillageWe’re very excited about this weekend’s upcoming first annual Taste of East Village, a culinary festival on East 7th Street, featuring dishes from more than 20 of the East Village’s best restaurants and eateries, and live entertainment from local musicians and cultural groups.

We’ve partnered with Porcena, Veselka, Luke’s Lobster and the Cooper Square Committee to present an event that will feature live entertainment alongside great eats and cool drinks! We’ll be open all day Saturday, September 17th, with libations and some special programming, including a poetry reading from 3-5PM featuring Seven Poets along with whiskey and mezcal tastings. Your used ticket gets you into the spirits sampling for free!

We hope you’ll join us on Saturday to celebrate our amazing East Village and Lower East Side community at the first annual Taste of East Village!

What We’re Loving Right Now in Beer and Food

Fall is just around the corner, meaning seasonal beers are coming your way. There are a couple breweries we are featuring on tap this week, and we’re loving what they’re doing! First up is the newly opened Interboro Spirits & Ales, the first brewery/distillery to open in NYC. Right now we have their Bushburg on draft, a perfect Pilsner for these final hazy lazy days of summer. We’re also enjoying the newest beers by Jeff O’Neil (f/of Peekskill Brewing), whose Industrial Arts brews we’ve be rotating through.

As for food, our fall seasonal menu features farm-to-table and butcher’s cuts, including our amazing “Best Burger” with a custom grind from Fleisher’s Craft Butchery. You can enjoy more in burgers starting next month, when George Motz has a weekly burger pop-up every Thursday night.

And for our vegetarian friends, we’ll feature a separate pop-up on Sundays through September as Chef Zad Farahvash of Cafe Zarathustra brings some Persian flair to our kitchen.

Speaking of cafes… Our Cafe Society Backroom is open for your fall and holiday bookings! Be sure to email us with your party needs, as slots are already booking up into the new year.
