A look Inside Pardon My French

Pardon My French Exterior
Pardon My French, formerly Casimir, has opened on Avenue B with a completely renovated bar in the previously under-used side room.  No word on the menu as yet, but it seems that that have taken a turn away from traditional French fare (see this NYPost article), as well as a revamped cocktail list.  I’ll admit that the place looks pretty great.

Pardon My French: 103 Avenue B btwn 6th & 7th Street

Solbeso Tasting At ABC Wine Co.

Posted on | March 28, 2014 | No Comments

Solbeso @ ABC Wine Co.The gang at ABC Wine are taking a break from their normal wine tastings & featuring Solbeso today.  What is Solbeso you ask?  Honestly, I have no idea, so I had to do some research (Googling) online.

Made from fresh cacao fruit from farms in Peru and Ecuador, Solbeso is being touted as the first new category of spirit in 200 years. Unlike the bean, cacao fruit has a light, citrus flavor ‘more akin to a creamy sorbet’.  ABC will be hosting Solbeso’s co-founder and a cocktail specialist, so it’ll be interesting to see the flavor combinations they come up with.
