Cannibal Liquor House Is Now Open for All Your Kips Bay Cocktail Needs

The Cannibal brand adds a bar to its portfolio

Back in August Christian Pappanicholas shuttered Resto after a nine run. This week he threw open the doors on Cannibal Liquor House, a spinoff of the adjacent The Cannibal Beer & Butcher, which also boasts outposts in Midtown and Los Angeles. Liquor house is principally a cocktail lounge with bar snacks from Cannibal chef Francis Derby. These include both a hamburger and a dry aged patty melt, as well as a ribsteak with Caesar salad for a relatively budget friendly $35. Resto labored under the burden of it origins as a Belgian restaurant, Liquor House has more wiggle room from a menu perspective; allowing Derby to add touches like a veal cheek with Yorkshire pudding. The room has been remodeled, replete with reclaimed wooden siding from a barn, and generally brightened up (with help from Pee Wee Herman). While Resto was primarily a restaurant Liquor House, as its name implies, is focused on cocktails and spirits. Take a look around the space below and if you stop by do let us know what you think.
