SPRING 44 GIN
The Winslow, a U.K-inspired modern gin joint and eatery, has opened up in the East Village this past month. Indulge in some traditional British dishes here like fish and chips, scotch eggs, bacon-wrapped quail and crumpets galore. But aside from all the tasty English dishes- we know what you're really here for. The alcohol of course. Their extensive menu of gins includes names like Ford's Gin, Spring 44 Gin, Bombay, Beefeater 24, Death's Door Gin and more. Their drink menu isn't for the faint of heart.
Prima, a hidden gem in the East Village (58 East 1st Street) is what results when a Rat Pack-esque group of five restaurant biz friends join forces to create a seafood focused café and bar. Prima is owned and operated by Hamid Rashidzada, Greg Seider, Ken Nye, Mathieu Palombino, and David Malbequi, who runs Prima’s kitchen fulltime. The friends wanted to open an eatery with seamless service giving guests a place to eat when many other restaurants are closed in between lunch and dinner service. Prima opens at 8 a.m. for coffee (provided by Nye’s Ninth Street Espresso) and pastries, so no matter the time, they’ll be there serving up their delightful dishes.
