Stir Up, Drink Down: the Campfire Roundup from The Seville in Manhattan
Given the top-rate autumn we’re having in New York City, you may find yourself longing for a taste of the season a bit more robust than the apple cider from the Union Square Famers Market. If so, duck down the stairs under Scarpetta in The James New York – Nomad that lead to The Seville and order a Campfire Round-Up.
Although the enticingly secretive lounge is below street level, you can still peer up at the night sky through the floor-to ceiling windows that line the wall opposite the low and warmly lit bar and watch the stylish fall boots and long wool coats pass quickly by on the sidewalk above. A member of the attentive and well-trained staff will bring you your drink and you should take a deep inhale of the wafting aromas of whisky, cold brew, amaro, bitter chocolate, and charred marshmallow before taking your first sip.
