HandCraft Kitchen & Cocktails: The Elite Destination For Liquor Aficionados In NYC
Like the name wisely expresses, HandCraft Kitchen & Cocktails is an elegant, dimly-lit haven for liquor aficionados and comfort food lovers in NYC.
The ample food menu of the hip, sultry restaurant consists of innovative American dishes such as Garlic Mac And Cheese, Crab' N Artichoke Dip, and our personal favorite, Buffalo Deviled Eggs. The curated selection is made to please even the most ambitious of palates, while at the same time satisfying the guiltiest of cravings.
While we recommend letting down your guard entirely when tasting the creamy, butter-filled delights HandCraft's chefs can offer, the eatery does also serve some diet-approved entrées. The Cauliflower Chickpea Burger is a smart choice for our vegan gals, while the fresh plate of mussels can be a delicious alternative for body-conscious seafood lovers.
As for the bar, well, that is the main reason why any booze-loving New Yorker should visit HandCraft. The everyday drink is as expected: perfectly balanced, brightly garnished, shaken not stirred, etc. The hotspot's mixologist, however, has a few tricks up his sleeve that you won't want to miss.
The Mezcal Milk, a house specialty, is an intricate concoction made up of a myriad of delightful ingredients: flowers, fruits, spices, and the richest of liquors. It takes entire days for the mixture to transform into the magical, clear liquid that is eventually is poured into your glass. Other alcohols can also be used in the Milks. With each batch, the flavors vary, yet despite its complexity, the clarity of the concentrated liquid remains the same.
Think golden Mezcal, floral perfume and autumn spices.
To accompany your hearty meal, we suggest trying the Bourbon Punch, or if you're feeling breezy, the Rose Spritz.
