NYC Top Bar & Restaurants of May

Pouring Ribbons

ALCHEMY CONSULTING consists of three members bound by their shared love and appreciation for the hospitality industry. Joaquín Simó (Tales of the Cocktail American Bartender of the Year, 2012), Jason Cott and Will Cart embrace their diverse backgrounds and skills in establishing and maintaining numerous award-winning programs around the country.


Attaboy is the everyman’s cocktail bar hidden in plain sight on an obscure bit of Eldridge Street. From Michael McIlroy and Sam Ross, the pair that helmed Milk & Honey throughout the late aughts, this understated beauty is the younger, less self-conscious sister that took over the space when M&H moved uptown.


Dante has been a beacon for the community of Greenwich Village since it opened its doors in 1915. Now a registered New York City landmark, this modest meeting house has always attracted people from all walks of life: famous actors, writers and musicians to the down at heel of the beatnik generation, all of whom have found solace in its relaxed & unpretentious environs. A place where a cup of espresso, a warm smile or a friendly embrace epitomized life’s simple pleasures.
