  • You've never been anywhere like ZZ's. Sip on the coconut cocktail & order as much as your wallet can afford. The uni on a pretzel roll is the standout. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check.
  • Everything on the menu is incredible and there are no bad choices. Personal favorites include the Coffee, Pistachio, and Coconut cocktails. End your spectacular night by paying with Cover.
  • The "Coffee" cocktail is made with two types of aged rum, creme de cacao, Campari, and a touch of Toby's Estate coffee, and it's served in a fancy porcelain teacup. Try the rum-based "Coconut" drink.
  • You will spend an amazing amount of cash in minuscule appetizers and cocktails. And it will be amazing. Just make sure you've lined up where you're actually having dinner.
  • This place insists upon itself
  • The place, the cocktails, the seafood... Nothing like it. Absolutely amazing. For cocktails, try Coffee, Pear, Cardmon, and Coconut. Food wise, uni toast and tuna/foie gras carpaccio is stunning.
  • Presentation of cocktails is remarkable. Make a reservation a week or so in advance.
  • Garnished with lavender and served in an antique teacup, ZZs coffee cocktail was one of 2013s best drinks. Crme de cacao, aged rum, and Campari offer a coffeelike balance of sweet and bitter

  • The tuna carpaccio is life-changing. Worth the ridiculous price tag!
  • One Michelin star.
  • This place has some of the best cocktails in the entire world. Get the Sarsaparilla (served in a pirate flask) or the Coconut (served on a silver platter [literally] with a smoking cinnamon stick).
  • Literally incredible. Very intimate, enough room for 12 people or so. Ornate cocktails. Mind blowing food.
  • a throwback to an age that never necessarily existed, ZZ's offers a unique, hip atmosphere and flashy cocktails. the Cilantro (pictured) is served in a poblano pepper!
  • A random call might get you a seat or maybe you'll have to book a month in advance. The cocktails might be the best in the city (pistachio, apple and pepper all delicious). Scallop crudo is so goooood
  • The tuna toast will blow your mind.
  • microscopic place, but cocktails are amazing. very trendy.
  • Every cocktail is delicious and ridiculously expensive. As for the food, be prepared to eat a real dinner somewhere else. All plates are super tiny and expensive!!
  • All the cocktails are delicious. Especially liked the Coconut, Pistachio and Almond. Can't go wrong with the menu but be warned that the carpaccios are VERY filling in addition to being very delicious
  • Even the toast is exquisite. Hear us out! Each tiny bite is loaded with stunning deep red trout roe, truffle honey and black truffles
