Winter Restaurant Week® 2017 Spotlight: Root & Bone

The semiannual event of New York City Restaurant Week is made for indulging. I’m not ashamed to share that I have been eating my way through the city more than usual. I’ve even done two-a-days. Yes, three-course meals for lunch and dinner.

Half way through this three week event, I have discovered the best under the radar deal in Manhattan. I suggest everyone get to Root & Bone before February 10th. The southern food darling of the East Village offers a casual yet elevated experience in a cozy spot on 3rd Street and Avenue B.

The Restaurant Week menu classics, such as biscuits, mac and cheese and shrimp n grits. The highlight the restaurant’s signature fried chicken, voted the best in New York City by Eater, paired with buckwheat cheddar waffles. A choice of pinot gris, pinot noir or a bourbon ginger beer cocktail is also included in the prix fixe. You’ll be stuffed before the Key Lime and Mississippi Mud pies arrive at your table for dessert.

We’ve selected bars a few blocks away to give you a chance to walk off your meal before grabbing another drink.

If you want to grab a beer, you can’t go wrong with Doc Holliday’s. It’s an East Village institution serving PBR with an old school jukebox, a pool table and Big Buck Hunter.

If you prefer a cocktail, Mother of Pearl will deliver tiki-inspired beverages. The Shark Eye, which I’m sure you have seen on Instagram, is the bar’s claim to fame. Lovers of Today is a hidden gem with a speakeasy vibe downstairs behind Niagara. There’s no sign, just a red neon heart. The intimate, dimly lit space serves speciality cocktails until 4am every night.

If you don’t think you’ll make to any of these bars on Avenue A, try Mama’s Bar around the corner from Root & Bone. The neighborhood dive bar offers strong cocktails with their own house infused liquors.
