Middle Branch is the latest addition to the Petraske New York cocktail empire that is slowly making its way uptown. It’s also a bright spot in an otherwise black hole for cocktails. The spacious two-floor townhouse has standing room on the ground floor and table seating upstairs, complete with exposed brick walls and a small fireplace (read: super cozy in winter). The staff are all Milk & Honey and Little Branch alums, so you can feel comfortable ordering all your pre-Prohibition favorites, and their newer inventions – all at an affordable $12.
