London’s Legendary Quaglino’s is Popping Up at NYC’s Dante

Merchant of Venice

 

Debuting in 1929 London, as the Great Depression was spreading to Britain, then given a trendy revamp by Terrence Conran in 1993, as the UK was struggling out of a recession, Quaglino’s is one of the few most storied restaurants in Blighty’s capital.

Now, 89 years on, it is making the trip across the Atlantic, to partner up for a few days with a place of equal legend: Greenwich Village’s century-old Dante. Indeed, the latter will host a pop-up of Quaglino’s perpetually fabulous bar from August 13-15; and best of all, it will be an afternoon affair (For the record, we are dedicated proponents of a bit of mid-day tippling).

 

Vitamin Sea

 

Quaglino’s’ venerated bar team of Marco Sangion and Federico Pasian will man the popular Dante aperitif bar from 2pm – 6pm each day, mixing up artistic signature drinks like ‘Merchant Of Venice’ (Rinomato Appetizer, Mancino Chinato served with Peroni Ambra), ‘Vitamin Sea’ (Tanqueray Gin, Italicus, Maraschino, Bergamot Juice, Lavender Syrup and Bob’s Ginger Bitter), and ‘Into The Woods’ (Don Julio, Palo Cortado, White Truffle, Amer Picon, Dandelion Bitter), amongst others. Expect to be dazzled by their singular cocktail alchemy.

“We are thrilled to¬†give New Yorkers a chance to sample some of Quaglino’s’ exclusive cocktails, bringing Mayfair to the heart of Manhattan this August,” enthuses the London restaurant’s Leslie Kwarteng.

Plan to stay on for dinner at Dante, for its handmade specialty pastas and a sublime plate of salumi misti.
