Decked out like an old-school cocktail den (big comfy chairs, marble & leather bar, tons of mirrors...) but without the standard manufactured wear and tear, this Battery Park City spot from a Mulberry Project and Death & Co alum is mixing scribe-inspired tails accompanied by writerly advice. To wit (that's something writers say, right?): the Hemingway-inspired Moveable Feast, and the Finishing Touches w/ rye, absinthe, maple bitters, roasted pecans, and the saying "even though a number have tried, no one has yet figured out a way to drink for a living". Except that aforementioned Hemingway guy. And bartenders. And Rip Torn.
