Home Away From Home


Forgtmenot on the Lower East Side.  

138 Division St., nr. Orchard St. 646-707-3195
It takes a certain panache to make a new bar feel like it’s been around forever. Forgtmenot’s cluttered, surf-shack décor and tag-sale furniture feel homey, not curated, and cocktails like the Dirty Pickle Martini ($11) or Dark ’n Sandy (rum, ginger, apple cider; also $11) fall just on the right side of pretentious. Friendly co-owner Adam Himebauch (who is rumored to moonlight as the Banksy-spoofing street artist Hanksy) looks barely 21 but wears many hats, from playing host to mixing drinks to delivering the kitchen’s Mediterranean bar food (housemade sweet-potato chips, $9; lamb meatballs, $11) throughout the neighborhood, on skateboard.
