Alphabet City fixture Baraza has been transformed into Summit Bar, a soft-spoken hideaway with Minetta Tavern–style venetian blinds in the window. As it so happens, the man behind the bar, Greg Seider, helped create Minetta’s much lauded drink list, and before that he made drinks for Mercer Kitchen, the Box, and Lot 61. Seider teamed with a fellow Mercer Kitchen alum, Hamid Rashidzada (who also has a hand in Esperanto, down the street). To make sure the cocktails aren’t compromised by crowds, the narrow bar limits capacity to 60 (anyone who’s turned away will receive a text when space opens up), and on weekends the door is tightened around midnight. The food program consists of bites like a Cubano panini, pulled pork sliders, and tuna tartare. During the winter, the small back patio is heated and tented, and come summer, it hosts barbecues featuring some of the duo’s chef friends.
