Manhattan – East Village
188 Ave B between 11th and 12th Sts
Manhattan, NY 10009
You know how some places just make everyone look better? Rue B is like that. Silver-blue banquettes line the walls, candles illuminate the polished-zinc tables, and photographs of jazz icons oversee the action (which includes nightly live music). Drinks are mixed with fresh-squeezed juice--the apple martini is made with Stoli, fresh apples and a touch of syrup--and they slide down all too easily. Draft beers include Guinness, Brooklyn Pennant and Brooklyn Pilsner; sangria and sake are also available. May as well tuck into some of the tasty nibbles on offer; you'll be here awhile.
