Summit Bar: Creative Cocktails on C

Next time you are in the east village, be sure to check out Summit, the new spot that opened where Baraza was. Mixologist and part-owner Greg Seider, who was recently responsible for creating the cocktails at Minetta Tavern, has put together a menu of classics and alchemist cocktails. He will also create one just for you, if you tell him what you are in the mood for, perhaps using herbs from the rooftop garden. Since we had just come from a Tres Generaciones event at LEVANTeast, we stayed with tequila. The cocktail: Ground to Glass (photo, right) had El Tesoro platinum tequila, red pepper, cucumber, jalapeno, basil infused agave, fresh lime, orange bitters. I like the fact that in the front lounge area where we were stationed, there is a functional bi-level glass cocktail table, which allow purses to be stored underneath, and drinks to sit atop. Good use of space. See more pics from our night out here.
