Drinks and Bites at Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar

I'm a total teetotaler these days, but after seeing a heavy documentary about the German Nazi propaganda filmmaker, Veit Harlan, playing at the Film Forum last night, I had to indulge a bit and get a proper cocktail. We headed over to Blue Ribbon's Downing Street Bar for light bites and some tipple to discuss the zany film we had just seen. It was probably 10:30 PM or so at this point of the night, and we were originally going to head over to Market Table on Carmine Street, but they were closing (which I found odd on a Sunday night), so we made our way over to Downing Street, which was open till 2AM. We ordered the following:

  • Manchego Cheese and Honey Toast
  • Hard Boiled Eggs and Pickled Pepper Toast
  • Baby Arugula and Butternut Squash Salad
  • BBQ Honey Chicken Wings

Everything was tasty and completely lovely.
Well seasoned, perfect portions, and delicious.

The cocktails were refined and exceptional. I had the Cucumber High (left), made of Hendricks Gin, cucumber juice and lemon juice. The drink is strong at first, but mellows out a bit after a sip.
