Cocktail bar located in the East Village, Mace offers a short - but elaborated - list of homemade cocktails where each type of alcohol gets its own recipe. Lovers of gin, you would choose the Thai that mixes gin, cucumber, lime, egg white, elderflower liquor and infusion of pepper. Vodka fans will see it combined with watermelon, verjuice, an infusion of pepper and soda to get the Black pepper. Now you should understand better. The place relies on atypical ingredients such as Suze with mustard seeds, coconut water or even tapioca. Beers, Pinot Noir, Riesling or red of Santa Barbara are also available for those who would like to avoid spirits.
Mace has three plates to accompany these drinks. First one is a a duo of crab-avocado. Second option for cheese lovers: a plate of Manchego (Spanish cheese) sweetened with a fig jam. The last but not least plate is an assortment of goat cheese, red grapes and granny apples. The tasting takes place in a trendy setting using industrial materials such as steel for the bar and wood and brick furniture. This modern - but effective - combination makes Mace the perfect address for many occasions, whether for after work, cocktail with friends or a romantic date.
