Julie Reiner, of Clover Club, joins forces with bartender Ivy Mix for this Latin-inspired new kid on the block. Just up the street from Clover Club, Leyenda’s menu is heavy on the spirits of Central and South America (tequila, mezcal, rum and pisco are common players) alongside a similarly Latin-inflected menu by Suenos chef Sue Torres.

Known For
  • craft cocktails
  • lots of mezcal / tequila
  • bar food

What to drink

Go wild. If you're in a slightly more conservative mood, though, you can't go wrong with the bottled Paloma.

ProTip

Ivy Mix is a lover of sherry, so if you're into the stuff, ask one of the bartenders for the extended wine list.
