Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield, who operate the Ace’s sceney Breslin restaurant, also have a hand in running this massive lobby bar. Among the many great beers, don’t miss the proprietary Breslin Aberdeen by Sixpoint Craft Ales, a pleasingly acidic, hand-pumped, cask-conditioned ale. We also fell hard for the Breslin Bloody Mary, a version that gives horseradish-spiked organic tomato juice and vodka a crowning garnish of pickled vegetables and smoked okra. Bloomfield’s bar snacks—“thrice-cooked chips” (some of the best thick-cut fries you can find) and a grilled three-cheese sandwich—make ideal companions to the drinks.
