Review: Death & Co., New York, NY

Posted by Ted on Nov 30, 2008 in Food & Drinks

A man stood outside a nondescript door next to a portable heater and took our phone number. “I’ll call you when there’s space available. It’s not a big place.”

Death & Co. is a bar on the lower east side of Manhattan with $13 drinks, and they are worth every penny, and every drop. The cocktail is craft at this modern speakeasy. Six of us sat around a small table, and ordered a round of drinks. A fan of bourbon, I chose the ‘Kerala Cocktail’, which contained rum, bourbon, muddled cardamom, lemon and pineapple juice, and bitters. It was complex, and every sip tasted just a bit different than the last.

Their drink menu changes seasonally, and their winter “flips” have replaced the juleps of summer. These feature a whole egg as a primary ingredient, giving the drink a creamy texture. Not your momma’s egg nog, that’s for sure.

They have a limited food menu, but includes a nice variety ranging from soft pretzels and mini pitas to bacon-wrapped filet mignon and maple pork belly.

Next time you’re in The City, stop in and let the mixologists at Death & Co. give your taste buds a treat. Be sure to bring friends, but no more than 6 of them. After all, it’s not a big place.

433 East 6th St, New York, NY – (212) 388-0882
