Editorial Review of Whiskey Bar & Grill

Every city has their version of the dread Viagra Triangle. Bars and restaurants making up a collective grouping of nightlife where the recently divorced go to wear shirts they don't know are embarrassing while hitting on girls their daughters may know on Facebook. Luckily, the Whiskey Bar and Grill is among the least of the offenders.

That may be because the recently revamped bar is just such a damn good looking place that it's hard to imagine it serving as a cheesy pickup bar. The "rescued" wood fixtures and the gorgeous, long communal table in the dining room vie for your attention, looking every bit as pretty as the clientele.

The Gerber brothers are behind this bar, and if you need a little insight into who they are, they have more than 30 bars and restaurants in the finer hotels around the world (this one in the Sutton Place Hotel on Rush). The Whiskey is no different, and the menu reflects that: cocktails like the Absinthe Alibi and appetizers like Mexico City street tacos are offered here. Like the refined decor, nothing is cheap, and it's all well worth it.

Average cost: $31+
