TastingTable Features New York Tiki Spots

Tasting Table New York

Just recently the Tiki-Ti was highlighted in the gourmet mag Saveur, and now my favorite foodie newsletter Tasting Table has published a round-up of “old-school tiki spots” in New York. (Although, the word ‘old-school’ is thrown around rather lightly here since many of the true old-school NY establishments closed long ago.)

Included are the Bikini Bar Sip ‘n’ Surf shop (their Hawaiian shaved ice martini has me intrigued), East Village bar Otto’s Shrunken Head, and King Yum (a mid-century-born Chinese restaurant with a thatched roof bar serving up “exotic drinks” in Queens).

And with the new tiki bar Painkiller to open soon, I have a newfound desire to visit the Big Apple again.
