Great Bars 2013: Range

Owen Thomson—the bar manager at this new Bryan Voltaggio spot
who formerly helmed the drinks programs at José Andrés’s restaurants—takes
advantage of a seriously tricked-out kitchen to concoct ingredients for
brilliant original cocktails such as the ethereal gin-based East Sea and
the Vegan Sacrifice, a spicy Scotch drink chilled with a veal-stock ice
cube. Insider tip: Drink nerds will want to forgo the dining room and grab
a stool at the marble bar, but they shouldn’t miss cocktail-friendly
“small plates” (they’re huge), including duck galantine and
uni-topped kimchee linguine. Open daily.
