For anyone who’s curious about—or already loves—bitter flavors in booze, you won’t do much better than Amor y Amargo, which has the best selection of amari in town. You can build flights to sample, ask knowledgeable bartender Sother Teague which ones you should try, or order a cocktail off the menu, like the eight amaro sazerac, which replicates the flavors of the New Orleans classic with an ingenious blend of amari. On the weekends, pop by for a coffee-focused brunch menu. It’s a tiny space, so be prepared to wait, but this is the East Village—you’ll be fine.
Came here after it popped up on my Yelp app. The bartenders here are incredibly knowledgeable. I wasn't sure what to order, and the bartender asked me what I was in the mood for. I wanted something that was seasonal and tasted like fall. Not sure what the drink I had was called, but it was spot-on. Autumn in a glass, strong, but super drinkable. My date got an amazing drink too. This is the kind of place you can just describe the mood you're in and get a corresponding craft cocktail. The only downside I'd say is the space is quite small. I like intimate, but they should get more comfortable seating and spaces to put things (especially in the fall/winter with all our heavy coats). Nevertheless, definitely planning to come back!
