Andrew Carmellini’s restaurant group has done a tremendous job of tailoring the cocktails to each restaurant’s ethos and palette of ingredients. This includes the elegant drinks at Lafayette, which employ under-utilized ingredients like calvados and pear liqueur. The stunning bar is usually packed to the gills, but it’s open all day long, so the dinner rush hour is not the only option for cocktails and a plate of oysters. In fact, the big, bustling room is most pleasant during the afternoon hours, between lunch and dinner service.
