Booker and Dax: Mixological Masterpieces


Girls’ night out should be a classy affair, so put on your favorite outfit and a new pair of high heels and meet your friends at Booker and Dax, home of the most creative cocktails in New York. Get there early if you want a table. In true New York style, the place isn’t huge and fills up quickly. But even if you’re teetering by the bar amid a sea of stylish cocktail hounds, you’re in for a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds. This cutting-edge temple of cocktails from the Momofuku crew uses unique technology to get the flavors and presentation of every drink just right, creating a bit of a spectacle along the way. Order a Friend of the Devil, the signature drink here, and get your camera ready. The bartender uses a red-hot poker to warm up this delicious combination of rye, Campari, bitters, sweet vermouth, and absinthe, creating an impressive flame that shoots out of the glass. It’ll soon be a race among your crew to Instagram the moment first. Since the bar is located next to Momofuku Ssam, the menu goes well beyond burgers. The steamed pork buns here draw as many raves as the cocktails, so be sure to get an order to balance out the mixological masterpieces you’ve been enjoying.
