If the only thing you've ever grown is a Tamagotchi that eventually got sick when you got sick of pressing the toilet button, you probably don't spend too much time in gardens… until now, thanks to the Cocktail Garden at The Artmore Hotel.
A Look Inside the East Village Steakhouse With No Chairs
The swanky hotel's garden is better than yours 'cause it... um, exists, and because there's plenty of space to gorge on badass bar eats, and swill some seriously good 'tails.
Also better than what you've got at home: the build-your-own grilled cheese menu that boasts sourdough, white, or wheatberry bread, plus cheddar, Provolone, or Monterey Jack, and things like applewood-smoked bacon, prosciutto, or... eww, veggies.
The Garden's signature man-tail is the Mosaic: it's got Jack, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, a little soda and lemon, and, presumably, carefully patterned colored tiles.
When you combine five or more liquors into one drink, it's a mistake, but when the CG combines pear vodka, two types of rum, Midori melon, and a few other things, it's a Paradise Punch.
Just try to keep your lady friends from drinking the Citron vodka/ lemon/ Champagne/ blue Curacao Starry Lights. Or keep your dude friends from mocking you when you order this actually pretty sweet beverage.
They might look a little like what made your beloved Tamagotchi sick, but these are really delicious crab cakes that are just one more reason you'll be doing some constant gardening at The Artmore.
