While waiting for a table at Death & Co., we walked down the street to find what looked like a store specializing in stocking all manners of Bittermen’s Bitters for sale and for drink. The bar space is extremely small, but it ensures that you will never be far from the knowledgeable bartenders or the expansive array of traditional bitter liqueurs behind the bar.
What’s Good: The house made vermouth that comes from a tap behind the bar. I would recommend drinking it on its own, and then trying it in a classic beverage such as the Negroni. It is truly fantastic. The cocktail menu has many unique creations worth trying as well. The Orchard Street Celery Soda is a cocktail that you will not find anywhere else.
Amor Y Amargo also has small plates of food (which are good because of all of the digestion stimulating beverages you’ll be drinking, you’re sure to be hungry) which are generally quite good.
What’s New: In writing this review, I just learned that they actually offer classes for bitters appreciation and cocktail techniques.
