Tribeca Gets Distilled: New Modern Pub Now Open

Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 11:06 AM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

In the heart of Tribeca, a modern rendition of a classic American public house is born. The sprawling landmarked space on the corner of West Broadway and Franklin is now home to Distilled, an inviting restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open kitchen, chef’s counter, raw bar and elevated outdoor patio for the warm summer months.

 
Young hotshot exec chef Shane Lyons, formerly of Momofuku Noodle Bar, showcases elevated comfort food in his creative, globally-flavored menu. You’ll find hearty bar snacks like beer-battered onion rings and Distilled’s signature wings, along with entrées of country fried duck & French toast-style waffles drizzled with smoked Serrano maple syrup, and 24-hour slow cooked pork ribs accompanied by watermelon, red onions and pickled mustard seed. A selection of sweet treats includes an apple pie soda float and strawberry cheesecake with pink peppercorn, rhubarb and mascarpone.

Celebrated mixologists Sheldon Wiley and Benjamin Wood are the dynamic duo behind Distilled’s beverage program, which features specialty signature drinks like the ‘Tribecan’ with bourbon, Carpano Antica, chocolate bitters, lemon oil and absinthe rinse, and the ‘Derby Shrub’ with Amaro CioCiaro, apricot shrub, chamomile-infused rye and fresh mint. Not only do my buds Sheldon and Ben totally rock, but their cocktails are killer—making Distilled’s bar definitely one to belly up to. A wine list featuring regional American and international varieties, along with an array of craft beers, round out the beverage offerings.

Check out the full menu here and stay up-to-date on this hot new spot by following Distilled on Facebook and Twitter.

Spring is finally in full swing, and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate. Warmer weather, longer days, shorter hemlines, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, the Kentucky Derby… just to name a few. And what better way to properly ring in spring than with a refreshing seasonal cocktail?
