111 Reade Street between West Broadway an Church St.
There are bars, and then there are cocktail bars – the refined establishment where drinks are an art, where “mixology” doesn’t just seem like a buzzword, and where carefully curated drinks are prepared and served with dignity. Ward III is firmly in the latter category, though without the contrivances that mark so many of the “speakeasy” style bars that surfaced...READ MORE

Transforming what had been a space for two previous restaurants that were somewhat stodgy into a light filled, airy space with French country accents; the folks at Claudette (who are also behind Rosemary’s and Bobo) have given fresh life to a frequently shuttered address.
