If you thought the negroni -- that ethereal combination of gin, Campari, and vermouth -- couldn't be improved upon, you might be right. But The Gilroy will at least expand your notion of what the drink can be. The Upper East Side bar serves no less than nine variations on the classic: the White Negroni is made with White Pike whiskey, Suze, and Lillet Blanc, while the Old Oscar features bourbon with chili liqueur, Campari, and chocolate bitters. Cheese plates, flatbreads, and approachable small plates like burrata and sliders complement the cocktails.
