Description

Village Voice's Description

It was inevitable: a mechanical bull in the East Village. Sign a waiver, step into the padded ring and prepare to be embarrassed in front of a raucous crowd. That's not the only Southern touch to this Lower East Side bar. The bourbon list is more 70-strong with bottles from distilleries large and small, including a selection of high-end limited edition bourbons like Jefferson's Presidential and Michter's 25 Year-Old Single Barrel Bourbon. Walking into this bar is like discovering a posh Southern roadhouse; hanging off the wood ceiling are a variety of elaborate chandeliers, some covered with red shades and others decorated with twisting antlers. Private booths are lined with metal horseshoes while cushier banquettes are complemented with rusty license plates. The kitchen puts out stick-to-your-ribs fare like mac and cheese, fried shrimp, cheese grits, baby back ribs and more. Flat-screen TVs provide plenty of entertainment on football Sundays when nobody is riding the bull.—Keith Wagstaff
