The cocktails have been paired with the dessert menu for double deliciousness. This bar and eatery has ambiance and quality, but is also imbued with a real sense of fun. Drinks like Bomb Baby, made from vodka, fresh watermelon, mint and cardamom, along with a pizza such as Bollywood that combines tikka chicken, caramelised onion, peppers, tomato and mozzarella, will have your night off to a flying start.
The Press Lounge, New York

The assorted salumi plate with mustard and a sliced baguette is a simple and delicious accompaniment for a glass of red such as the Deep Sea Merlot, California.
