Where to Watch the Golden GlobesBy Billy Lyons
January 10, 2014
We know trying to eat a meal when Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are on stage isn't easy, but that isn't stopping a handful of New York City restaurants from putting together special drink menus to coincide with the Golden Globes this Sunday. Here's a look at some of the best offers.
A.G. Kitchen: We love a place that honors its customers, especially when one of them is on a TV show like Breaking Bad. The Upper West Side restaurant is crafting a special michelada in honor of actress and longtime patron Betsy Brandt (aka Marie Schrader), and will have its full selection of tacos, burgers, and ceviche on hand (212-873-9400).
Amigos: Chef Alex Garcia is cooking up unlimited quesadillas to accompany bottomless margaritas for $19.95 during the restaurant's screening party, a deal that might just be crazier Jennifer Lawrence's portrayal of a Long Island housewife in American Hustle. The Morningside Heights Mexican will also have their regular dinner menu full of shareable plates like papaya and mint guacamole as well as their 32-ounce rum and pineapple punch ($19) that's made for two (212-864-1143).
Favela Cubana: The Greenwich Village Cuban-Brazilian eatery will break out the big screen and prosecco for groups of six or more guests who join the restaurant for dinner. Each guest must order an individual entree to receive the complimentary bottle, which shouldn't be too hard since many of the tropical inspired dishes will make you forget its the middle of January. The bar will also have its usual line up of flavored mojitos and caipirinhas to get the crowd in the mood should the opening monologue fall flat (212-777-6500).
SingL: We love a formal award show event, so if you're looking for a more upscale awards experience, this Union Square lounge is dressing up its usual drink selection with a special brandy and champagne based cocktail for the show. The lounge will also be offering complimentary spiced nuts to snack on in between commercial breaks, and guests can toast to the victors with classy libations like gimlets and Hemingway daiquiris if don't feel like splurging on the bar's extensive single malt scotch list (212-253-1234).
Sons of Essex: The Lower East Side bar is known for hosting screening for shows like The Walking Dead, so we know the staff is well accustomed to creating a golden atmosphere when it comes to theme parties. The bar is planning to offer a few food and beverage specials - with rinks inspired by zombies and Bryan Cranston's Walter White (212-674-7100).
