New York Nightlife: Often referred to as a hot dog stand for grown-ups, PDT actually does have its roots here, as it is adjacent to the Crif Dogs space that has become local legend in the East Village. The drinks here even keep up with the meat theme to a degree, using bacon-infused bourbon in many drinks.
Master mixologist Jim Meehan heads the cocktail menu, and counts Staggerac as one of his favorites, a potent mixer paying homage to the deer head on the wall. PDT stands for Please Don't Tell, so leave our name out of your mouth when you visit.
