Dirty French, the newest restaurant from the people who brought you Parm and Carbone, is settling nicely in the Ludlow Hotel since it opened a few months ago. Now the Torrisi team has added a brand new lobby bar menu that will be served in the lobby, at the bar, and in the hotel’s “secret” all-season garden.You’ll be able to sample tartines and pommes frites and sip on French cocktails to your heart’s content seven days a week from noon until midnight.
Some menu highlights include huîtres, East Coast oysters with a tabasco mignonette; jambon Américain with Surryano ham and muffuletta remoulade; and a lamb burger topped with Bucheron and cumin onions. The tartines include tuna tartare, salmon rillette, and Cajun shrimp.
If you choose to imbibe one of the new cocktails, you’ll be transported to “the 1920s watering holes of Paris and New Orleans” with drinks like the Grand Prix, made with grain Japanese whiskey, coconut vermouth, ras el hanout, and aromatic bitters.
