One part bar/lounge and one part resto equals The Churchill! Arriving close to 9p for a Girl’s Night Out pre-party meal, we quickly dove into a myriad of cocktails, and before we knew it yummy dishes were en route to our table. As soon as we downed the first round of oysters, the upstairs dining room was filled with party-goers ready for a good time grooving to beats from the DJ.
Don’t expect a gourmet meal at this modern gastropub….go for the DJ, cocktails and noshing!
The Lower East Side has a new resident “hot spot” and it goes by the name of Sons of Essex. Don’t be confused when you approach the resto and a doorman in a fully functional deli greets you. Once you enter, all roads lead to a swanky, rustic, saloon-like speakeasy resto, lounge and bar. The decor is very reminiscent of a scene from HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”. The wooden pillars, old photos, and bookshelves stocked with knick-knacks, books and canisters generates a retro-den feel.
The vibe is amazing, and much of that can be attributed to the dope soundtrack. Hip Hop classics keeps the crowd grooving while noshing and sipping. They kick things up a notch Thursday through Saturday with a live DJ rocking from the pit (sunken lounge area).
The menu is filled with American comfort food classics such as grilled cheese, ribs, lobster pot pie and mac & cheese laced with global seasonings and a creative twist.
This casual West Village urban fish shack delivers comfort food with a seafood focus and a bustling bar. A few things to note- breakfast items are served until 4p during the week, they’re open late night, the music is usually on point, and there seems to be a little something for everyone (even if you’re not a seafood lover). I haven’t tried the ditch dog or their Sunday Lobster Bake but it’s on my radar!
