Lo, we bring you tidings of great gumbo, which shall be rendered unto you and a date tomorrow night...
It be calledeth King Bee, and it’s a rustic journey into glorious Louisianan dinners and fortified-wine cocktails, opening tomorrow.
Inside Llewyn Davis was shot, in part, here. In fact, a former research biologist created a cocktail named Llewyn’s Door for the place. It’s fortified wine, hazelnut orgeat and stout. So there’s all that.
But on to the point of the thing: first-date catnip is what you’re working with here. And we’re just going to take you down a couple steps off a quiet block in the East Village and tuck you right into a nice, warm slideshow.
Along the way, you’ll develop feelings of covetousness for marinated chicken, rabbit rillettes and an herbaceous gumbo.
... Or maybe that already just happened.
