What a great little place and the food was phenomenal !!! We started with drinks(OF COURSE!). Our waiter was very attentive. We sat in the back area which was warm & quiet. NOT that it's a loud music playing place.

I had never been to The Distillery until this week. They have a nice menu that needs a bit of tweaking. I had the coffee rubbed skirt steak, which was good and cooked as I ordered, but was drowning in a too-salty brown sauce. Everything...More

Visited Feb 2016 and loved it so had to go back when we came back to New York. The place has had a rebrand and it's just as great as ever. Definitely get the Mac and Cheese it is to die for!

The Distillery is craft. Cocktails made with specially curated ingredients and a new-American kitchen turning out elevated favorites. We source the finest whiskeys, gins, and vodkas to bring you fresh, innovative options with a nod to the past. Classic skirt steak, but finished with an espresso rub. A chocolate brownie just like mom used to make, but with a bit of bacon and splash of whiskey in the batter. In our kitchen, you’ll find old favorites made new with creative twists and fresh additions. Join us for dinner and see for yourself. The Distillery is a true cocktail bar. Whiskeys with a velvet finish and gins with a nose of floral juniper. Sip our thoughtfully curated collection of liquors or try a handcrafted cocktail made with fresh ingredients and built with love by one of our knowledgeable bartenders. Chase it with a selection from our craft beer list, featuring small breweries from all over the country.
