It’s scorching in the city, so properly refueling is a must. Here’s a sample of Luxury Attaché’s favorite summer eats and treats.
Whether going out or grilling up, BBQ is a must during the summer. Best eats: Berkshire Belly at Fette Sau (Williamsburg); Half BBQ Chicken Plate at Dinosaur BBQ (Harlem); Slow-Cooked Ribs at Georgia’s East Side BBQ (LES). Taking to the flame? Dickson’s Farmstand (Chelsea Market) specializes in local, sustainable meats; call ahead for car-side delivery. Head to Faicco’s Pork Store (West Village) for sausages and pair your pig with cheese and charcuterie from Murray’s, located on the same Bleecker Street block.
Quench your thirst with a sweet summer sip. Newcomer Kingston Hall (East Village) serves its drunken coconut drink, made with spiced rum, fresh coconut water, pineapple juice, in a hollowed shell. Light and simple rosé sangria is best from Socarrat (Chelsea), and the St. Hilaire, made with St. Germaine, cava, lemon peel, from the John Dory Oyster Bar (NoMad) is superb.
ICE, ICE BABY
Beat the heat with an iced treat.
