The speakeasy-fication of New York continues with this Prohibition-inspired restaurant from the folks behind Punch and Judy and PS 450. Named after Andrew Volstead, the congressman associated with the booze ban, the spot’s menu features non–Roaring ’20s–esque drinks (see the cantaloupe daiquiri) and eats (saffron shrimp).
