Celebrating the start of this year’s Sony Open Tennis Tournament, Chef Daniel Boulud’s outpost of his famed NYC restaurant will be offering half priced cocktails and exquisite bar bites. Gin lovers will also sample and learn how to make perfect gin cocktails from Bombay Sapphire’s mixologists, and DJ Michael Sarysz will be present to add a little rhythm to the ambience. Tennis fans will also get the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Sony Open as they are raffled out every half hour.
The owners of Highlands, a contemporary Scottish gastropub, and Mary Queen of Scots have done it again, and this time with Gin. Whitehall, located on Greenwich Avenue in the West Village, is a Restaurant/Bar that is trying to capture the quintessence of modern British cuisine while crafting cocktails celebrating the complex, and beautiful aromatic flavors of an underrated spirit, gin.
The dim lit restaurant sweeps you off the streets of New York City, and brings you to London where the structure and decor of the restaurant have been influenced by the city's green gardens and train stations, according to Whitehall's website. The modern light bulbs produce a romantic, intimate yet comfortable atmosphere, making it the perfect place to have a first date or dine with your closest friends.
