recommended a friend host their birthday drinks at 25 lusk the other day and it was a perfect fit. their lounge space is gorgeous and ideal for a medium to large group who want to go out for drinks and apps. its actually really huge but sectioned off into smaller, cozy lounges – most of which have modern suspended fireplaces at their center. for a more intimate experience you can opt for booths in the speakeasy style nooks behind the bar.
we ordered the bacon tempura and i feel like my life has been forever changed. i mean, it just makes so much sense. why wouldn’t you batter and deep fry bacon?! not to mention that its served with burrata, which on its own is also one of my favorite things. i pretty much think the dish i genius.
i always want to order whiskey drinks but often find they have too much of an edge for my taste or are too sweet. the red monkey is phenomenal and i could easily drink it in way too large of quantities (enter life-
saving changing bacon and burrata). its the perfect slightly smoother take on a manhattan, with a touch of mint for a breath of fresh air.
