Why It's Hot: Though Belcampo is more restaurant/butcher shop than bar, in March they launched their first low-proof (think sherry, vermouth and the like) cocktail menu, that can be enjoyed along a small bar in the butcher shop. The menu was created by cocktail greats Jon Gasparini and Greg Lindgren, who opened Rye on the Road, Rye and 15 Romolo, and work with Belcampo's meaty elements.
Must-Drink: Their hot Bone Broth Toddy utilizes fresh, daily bone broth from Belcampo's own meats, mixed with Amontillado sherry, Belcampo's vinegar-based Shotgun Sauce, Calabrian chiles and sage, garnished with an aromatic sprig of rosemary and lemon zest. Equally savory and intriguing? Their Boney Mary (pictured), a Bloody Mary twist.
Insider Tip: Akin to an Italian (specifically Venetian) cicchetti hour, Belcampo offers free bites and slices of house salumi with drinks during a late afternoon/early evening apéritif hour.
