    Tea Time Negroni at Golden Cadillac Food & Drink

Golden Cadillac Food & Drink debuts in the East Village

Booze all-stars Giuseppe Gonzalez (PKNY, Clover Club) and Greg Boehm (Cocktail Kingdom) debut their much-anticipated 55-seat cocktail bar, an ode to the gritty 1970s.


Before Times Square transformed into a light-polluted tourist trap and the Bowery became a monied playground, New York City’s streets were littered with a far-grittier bunch. Nostalgic for the 1970s, third-generation barman Giuseppe Gonzalez (PKNY, Clover Club) and drinks historian Greg Boehm (owner of barware emporium Cocktail Kingdom) join forces for the first time for this ode to the seedy decade, opening November 6th. At the 55-seat spot—outfitted with a wooden canopy bar and patterned wallpaper—the powerhouse duo revives maligned classics like the hot grasshopper, the sour-apple Bellini and the Miami Vice (a frozen piña colada with a strawberry daiquiri float). To match the throwback quaffs, chef Miguel Trinidad (Maharlika, Jeepney) crafts a menu of retro comfort eats from vintage food magazines—a shrimp Louis salad with Treasure Island dressing; a deep-fried Monte Cristo sandwich; and Italian turnovers stuffed with tomato alla vodka and cheese. 13 First Ave at 1st St (646-924-8153)
