No doubt one of the coolest places in the city, with its French attitude and menu, great strong drinks, and a sexy patio, AD serves shrimp/scallops and grits, fruit-topped French toast (it’s bomb), crab cake Benedicts, and more until 3pm on weekends. Live jazz is played inside near the bar, which you’ll want to be sure can legally serve you, so don’t show up with Shawty before 12:30pm on Saturday or Sunday, especially if you’re badly in need of one of the house cocktails, like the Hoegaarden-mixed MANmosa or the beer/tequila/tomato juice-combo they call an Ugly Maria. Especially if you hooked up with Maria the night before and didn’t realize until now that she looks better after cocktails.
You’re right in the thick of Midtown’s skyscrapers on the 11th floor of The Glenn. Obviously it’s not exactly as cool in terms of temperature as it is from the viewpoint perspective. Still, they serve cucumber-laced martinis that’ll hopefully keep you from sweating through that nice new shirt you just bought.
