Opening Alert: Seamstress Debuts Its Serious All-American Cocktail Menu Tonight

Expect an extensive drink selection from the 50 states.

After several nights of friends and family test runs, Seamstress is opening its doors to the rest of New York tonight on the Upper East Side. The cocktail bar and restaurant is marking its territory in the old JBird space with a lair/ski lodge-ish design, complete with a large tree trunk table and of course a bar dotted with bottles of juices and bitters. The project is a collaboration between the Gilroy boys, Duck's Eatery chef Will Horowitz, and ex-Dead Rabbit bar master Pam Wiznitzer.

The Menu: Both cocktail and dinner menus play on the seamstress theme with sections dubbed "needlework," "main seams," "patchwork," and "gusset," and focus heavily on American inspired food and drink. In addition to the house cocktails, Wiznitzer promises that 50 classic drinks from the 50 states will always be available.
