You want to eat well. And you want to drink well. And you want to do them both in the same location, if possible.
So allow us to present your new booze-soaked supper club. Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill opens this Monday in Midtown.
Brought to you by the fusion masterminds behind SushiSamba, this splashy new mega-lounge is built to satisfy your various dinner and nightlife prerequisites. Its focal point is the indoor/outdoor, square-shaped bar, where you'll sit outside on breezy nights and work your way down Latin-inspired drinks like the Nina Fresca, a fruity combination of vodka plus strawberry and guava juice. (Guava juice. So it's good for you.)
When hunger hits, you'll guide your date to a center-of-the-action booth, which overlooks three separate kitchens: a raw bar (Sugarcane holds a highly coveted sushi license in Midtown), a hot kitchen and the robata, a Japanese charcoal grill. It's all helmed by Chef Timon Balloo, who you'll remember from Domo Japones, fresh off a tapas-filled trip to Spain that he's woven into the global menu.
And definitely check it out on a Wednesday—the party starts with a band and some professional-grade cigar rolling.
There's nothing like a good stogie to commemorate hump day.
