In this day and age, waiting a whole three to four months for a restaurant to update its seasonal menu is just intolerable. What is this, 2009? Thankfully, there’s The Daily, named for its daily food and drink specials. The Daily—located where the now defunct Monday Room used to dwell—is directly adjacent to Public, but it’s its own space and venue. And what a venue it is: the cocktail bar is a beautiful mix of polished leather booths, enormous mirrors, and just enough contemporary art to remind you that you’re in SoHo. The cocktail culture here is serious: tinctures and bitters and all manner of specialized devices line the bar, fresh fruit and garnishes add some color, and an apothecary-like shelf of mason jars filled with all manner of mixological wonders looms over it all. Expect the menu of daily cocktail specials and haute cuisine to change up regularly, but if the fried oysters, pig’s head banh mi with crunchy ear and lamb terrine with apricot chutney are any indicator, the food’s going to be different but tasty.Daily Specials
