New York Spot-Light: Whitman and Bloom Liquor Company


Though their lives were modest, they believed in eating well. James Joyce

Deciding where to grab a drink (and possibly nosh on something tasty) in Manhattan's bar-heavy Kip's Bay can be tough for even the savviest sipper. If you're in the mood for artisanal cocktails and/ or made-to-be-shared, locally-sourced rustic new American fare, consider stopping at the 19th Century retreat-inspired Whitman and Bloom on 3rd Ave between 27th and 28th Streets. I recently attended the launch of the restaurant's winter menu and sampled a few seasonal cocktails.

The bartender mixed cocktails with masterful nonchalance
