, a cocktail lounge from the owners of Eastern Standard
and Island Creek Oyster Bar
, opened in November after much anticipation. Decorated with 50 pieces of artwork and meant to channel a sleek, urban residence, the space has a back room with its own bar that can host events for 30. Smaller, semiprivate areas can host gatherings for groups of two, five, and 15. Menu items include deviled eggs, soft pretzels with bourbon mustard, and Reuben toast. For the beverage list, mixologist and proprietor Jackson Cannon created specials such as the Belle de Jour, made with pink cognac, benedictine, pomegranate, and champagne.
