Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

ATTABOY, 134 Eldridge Street (between Delancey and Broome Street), Lower East Side

The Black Watch cocktail isn’t listed on Attaboy’s menu because the unmarked cocktail bar doesn’t have a menu or even a regular roster of cocktails. What it does have are skilled bartenders who can whip up something great based on how you’re feeling. Our bartender (Brandon) was amazing. He listened to what kind of cocktails we were in the mood for, mixed up something from his back pocket, and then without an iota of pretention had a conversation with us about the drinks.

When Milk & Honey, the pioneer in throwback speakeasy cocktail bars (you originally needed an unlisted phone number to gain access) moved uptown, Attaboy opened in its place. A year later on New Year’s Eve, I finally got to visit it and I can say it’s just as good and as much as fun as the first time I discovered the narrow little bar hidden behind a mysterious gray door on the outskirts of Chinatown.
