about NYC speakeasy Employees Only
opening its second location back in April, and the craft cocktail bar is finally launching mid June at 112 Amoy Street.
The much-lauded bar and restaurant, which ranked #4 on the World's 50 Best Bars list in 2015, retains its Prohibition-era vibe and is managed by the folks behind Pangaea, Bang Bang and Match, with principal bartender Steve Schneider and executive chef Julia Jaksic, and a few other partners. Just like its New York flagship, you can expect raucous late-night partying and friendly hospitality—the last batch of revelers will be served warm cups of chicken soup upon closing.
The all-important cocktail menu has highlights like the EO Gimlet, made with Perry's Tot Navy Strength gin and lime cordial, and Ready Aim Fire, a mix of mezcal, lime juice, honey-pineapple syrup and Hellfire Bitters. On the kitchen front, options range from a strong variety of meat, seafood, pasta, burgers and salad dishes, such as the roasted trout, bone marrow poppers and EO Dry Aged Burger. Late-night offerings are available till 2am, and there are plans to include tacqueria items too.
In the meantime, here's what you can expect:
Hand-chopped beef tartare
Lamb chops wrapped in bacon
The new bar is just part of an overall shake-up over on the party street. There have been new bars and new restaurants opening in recent weeks, with a few more new arrivals scheduled for this month. For more information on new places to eat and drink on Amoy Street, click here
