Cove Lounge
Harlem native Alyah Horsford-Sidberry pays homage to her neighborhood with this bi-level uptown drinkery, decked out with hardwood floors, a concrete bar and plush brown stools. The 75-seat space serves riffs on classic tipples (Lenox Sidecar: cognac, hibiscus grenadine, lemon juice) and tropically inspired cocktails (Smuggler’s Cove: spiced rum, cognac, orange liqueur, almond syrup, pineapple and orange juices, tiki bitters, port wine float). The Caribbean-inspired menu includes dishes like jerk-rubbed Island Chicken wings with a pineapple-mint dipping sauce and crispy shrimp with a coconut and curry sauce.

I dig Cove. Had a chance to check it out for their Cocktail tasting pre-opening and have been back a few times since. Tatiana and Carmen are solid behind the bar, and the drink menu is solid as well if you're looking for proper cocktails. The Crab & Grits were damn good even as someone that's admittedly not the hugest fan of Grits. Kind of smaller than you'd like it to be, but we'll just call it intimate. Definitely pops on the weekends. Nice addition to the rotation.

Just saw your restaurant on Bobby Flay's "3 Days to Open". I was so excited to see that you have accomplished your goal and succeeded in making Cove work! I look forward to cheeking out this new hot spot for myself when I come back to New York. Currently reside in DC but went to college in NY. Congrats again Alyah!
