Wintry Treats at David Burke’s Treehouse
January 04, 2013 | by Cait Rohan | Food & Drink News
Enjoy a Winterberry Sangria at David Burke's Treehouse Bar through February.
The mostly glass interior at David Burke’s Treehouse Bar may evoke the feeling of being in a snowglobe come wintertime—if said snowglobe looked out onto the trendy streets of SoHo and was housed within the upscale James Hotel. Embrace the season further with the Winterberry Sangria, a refreshing mix of Pouilly Fuisse, Pisco 100, Cointreau Noir, St. Germain, and simple syrup, mixed with orange, grapefruit, and lemon juices. Or, if you’re looking to warm things up, sip The 3rd Date, a bold blend of tanteo jalapeno, mescal, agave, lime, and a DB bacon lollipop.
Complement your cocktails with satisfying small plates like the maple bacon dates, smoked salmon pastrami sticks, melt-in-your-mouth donuts, chili, or a rotating-daily selection of tacos. But the pièce de résistance on a cold winter’s night is the hearty kitchen burger—a juicy mini sandwich that’s best enjoyed with cheese, bacon, and a side order of the naked fries. 23 Grand St., SoHo, 212-201-9119
