Beef, broccoli, and bourbon? Why not. Sprawled out on a quiet NoHo corner, Chinatown Brasserie has been serving higher-end Chinese classics since 2006. While Chinatown Brasserie is a good restaurant, it's an even better bar. Separated from the cavernous dining room, the bar spans almost the length of the restaurant anchored by a plush lounge area. It’s a great place to drink. It’s a great place to drink bourbon.
A Bourbon At?is sponsored by our friends at Basil Hayden’s Bourbon. Basil Hayden’s is handcrafted, light-bodied and aged longer with twice as much rye to produce an incredibly approachable, sophisticated and luxurious bourbon. It’s spicy. Unexpected. And full of potential. Just like your plans tonight.
The food at Chinatown Brasserie is not cheap, but fortunately the bar has great happy hour deals where you can sample a variety of their excellent dim sum for only a few bucks. The service is polished, the décor is splashy, and the ambiance is pleasant. While a Tsingtao might do the trick with the dollar variety dim sum down in Chinatown, this place calls for something a little more interesting. This place calls for a bourbon.
