The bar Little Branch in the East Village here in New York has a rather unique take on making cocktails. You can order from their menu, or you can challenge their bartenders to make you a concoction based upon a theme, keyword or phrase, flavor profile, or general idea. We wound up at Little Branch after dinner at Ditch Plains, and decided to put the bartenders to the test….
Tragic hipsters on fire…
The proprietors of the Sunburnt Cow have (soft) opened a bar in my neighborhood, the Sunburnt Calf. My buddy Hugh met the owner at a bar one night, found out about the soft opening this weekend, and we wound up going over there for their inaugural brunch today. It was excellent, and I don’t think I’ve ever had a burger with more toppings than this:
Burger, cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, beets, onions, pineapple, fried egg (seriously). It sounds like it’s too much, but really it works. I want to put beets on my burgers from now on.
After the jump…the cocktail deals!
When you were a child, did you ever have Kraft Macaroni and cheese with cut-up hotdogs in it? I remember it fondly as a dish that my Dad would make us when my Mom wasn’t around to cook, because it was simple and it was pretty much the most delicious thing ever. Last night I ate at Ditch Plains here in New York with some friends (29 Bedford St, NYC). I saw THIS on the menu and my decision was made immediately:
I give you… The Ditch Dogs. Two hot dogs topped with one of the most delicious macaroni and cheeses I have ever had. A-ma-zing.
