Smith & Mills is one of my favorite places in the city. Better to go earlier in the evening (or on a weekend or on an off-night). Otherwise, the tiny spot is packed+loses charm

Drinks and grub are great here, with a continental beer/wine list, tried and true cocktails, and plates like hungarian meatballs and mussels steamed in white wine.

If you love ginger, order up their Dark & Stormy and make-out with your glass.

Perfect for a quiet Friday evening post-work drink, but then stay for dinner.

Check out the bathroom, made out of a turn-of-the-century elevator with a flip-down sink from a Depression-era railway car.

Tiny but cute. Must use the bathroom/former elevator. Awesome factoid: the kitchen is made of two hotplates behind the bar and food looks impressive!

4 things to know: 1) order a Dark & Stormy 2) look around, conduits and other underground pieces are part of the charm 3) bathroom is an old elevator 4) go early or late. Peak times = bad experience

A rustic-chic gem of cocktail bar not much larger than a jewel box. Order a Negroni, and dont be surprised if Robert DeNiro or Bradley Cooper wander in off for a night cap (001 212 226 2515).

Super cute little spot on the west side, interior design is great, but not a lot of tables - a must 'check in'

Tiny little hole in the Tribeca wall, with flashbulbs dancing outside with someone mega-famous walking by. Good manhattan, too.

Tiniest mightiest kitchen alive. Get the lobster poached eggs with avocado toast.

Sit on the single chair to the right of the bar and feel AC on a hot day like you've never felt it before!

Perfect cheeseburger, cooked medium rare on toasted brioche. Washed Out on the stereo only seals the deal.
