Zenzero at Gemma
A couple days ago, I went to a new restaurant (new for me that is – there are so many good places in NY, you never want to repeat!) called Gemma, an Italian brasserie (à la Keith McNally’s Morandi), adjoined to The Bowery Hotel (Bowery and 3rd St). It has great outdoor dining – sidewalk and terrace – and the food was yummy, hearty Italian fare.
The cocktail I chose, Zenzero, immediately got a thumbs-up from the waiter as a good choice and it was delicious. Made of limoncello, Domaine de Canton (a ginger liqueur that I’m new to), fresh mint, lemon and ice, it was mojito-esque in its slightly sweet tanginess (note: I love mojitos, or “mojits” with a hard J, as I call them).
