Death and Co.
From their website:
"In 1919 the Volstead Act brought a swift end to nightlife, and the refined craft of the American bartender was outlawed. It was thought that to drink alcohol was to live a life shadowed by death. It was thought by some that these were death and company. It's taken us nearly a century to restore flavor to the drink and class to the specialty cocktail. In our time, a night to celebrate life's simple pleasures with fine wine, exquisitely crafted cocktails, beautifully prepared food, and impeccable sipping spirits is a rare gift. To those who shun the night, we tip our hat. To those who shine after the dusk, we offer a warm embrace. Welcome to the new golden age. Welcome to Death and Co."
We just found out yesterday that one of our favorite bars in NYC is looking for a floor manager. Gia is sending them her resume today. She has had a bunch of interviews with places all over the map and it looks like she might be getting a few offers very soon. This one, however, would be nice! Because I like to drink there. Hey...I'm allowed to be a little selfish.
I'll keep you updated.
