New Yorkers were hit hard by the closure of the beloved speakeasy, Angel’s Share, earlier this year. But lucky for us, Tukuma Watanabe, its head bartender from 2013-2021, launched his first solo concept with a new martini bar in Gramercy shortly after in April. Located in a three-story 1800s carriage house that once was the studio of French-American sculptor, Philip Martiny, at Martiny’s, expect expertly-crafted cocktails through offerings like from the Grand Martiny’s (gin, fino sherry, cognac, grape) to Royal Horse’s Neck (cognac, champagne, ginger ale, orange). Alternatively, if you’re thirsty for something more made-to-order, opt for a customized cocktail in line with your preferred spirits and flavorways. The food program led by chef Wayne Cheng consists of a variety of small plates like the decadent Steak Tartare.
