Order:  Vanilla Old Fashioned (off the drink menu)

Comments:  This establishment, similar to the Gramercy Tavern, is the perfect drinking experience.  I started with a traditional Sazerac with Old Overholt.  The bartender took his time to expertly prepare this multi-step cocktail as you would for a friend.  Later, I ordered the Old Fashioned.  Large glass, lots of ice, with no fruit — instead he used ground vanilla bean which can be seen in the photo.  While not my favorite mix, I appreciated the experimentation.  We chatted about technique and Banana Jamesons.  Cocktails were well priced and the food was excellent.
