Sons of Essex
133 Essex St
New York, NY
Nestled on the cute LES block of Essex, this restaurant-speakeasy may look, to any passerby, like a normal patisserie. Once past the storefront, you’ll find yourself in the most charming café complete with warm leather tufted booths, deep wooden accents, and small bursts of light. After delighting on Guss’ Grilled Cheese and fried pickles, you’ll try enticing cocktails like the tea-blended William “Boss” Tweed- Bacardi and coco chai, with agave and pineapple juice.
The Wall Street Journal 4/6/12Cocktails are $5 during happy hour (compared to the usual $13). The two most popular are the Delancey Farm and the Moscow Five Points with Chinese 5 spice, agave and fresh muddled ginger.
Tony X.7/17/12The Lump Crab Melts were insane. Tons of crab. The Wild Pacific Salmon followed up with an herb salad and was equally delicious. Ended meal with churros. Sons of Liberty cocktail is the way to go!
