This week's sadly a bit on the thin side when it comes to tasty food events, but if you aren't taking a much-needed respite from drinking all the margaritas in Manhattan, there are still a few spots where you can stuff grub and booze down your gullet. Here's where to do it:
On Monday, Troy Liquor Bar in the Meatpacking District is offering a special deal in honor of National Whiskey Sour Day, which is a real day that sort of exists. Score a "Thunder Road," made with George Dickel Rye, fresh lemon, and Six Point Crisp, for only $8 during happy hour from 6 p.m. to 8p.m., then roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair, sit tight, take hold, THUNDER ROOOAD... No reservation necessary. Turns out Troy Liquor Bar is closed on Monday, so never mind!
Also on Monday Louro in the West Village is holding their annual Summer Truffle Dinner, as part of their weekly Nossa Mesa supper parties. For $85, you'll be treated to four truffle-heavy courses complete with a dose of shaved truffles on top—dishes include poached duck egg with potatoes, onions and truffle pudding, risotto, and whole roasted truffle chicken. The BYO wine-and-beer dinner runs $85 per person and kicks off at 7 p.m.; make a reservation through the restaurant.
And last but not least, on Tuesday, head to Huertas in the East Village, where the Basque-inspired newcomer will be launching its new 24-seat five-course tasting menu. The $55 rotating menu will kick off with a sampling of pintxos—Basque smallbites—followed by three savory entrees and a dessert or cheese course. For $85, you can pair your dishes with ciders and wines from Northern Spain; Tuesday's dinner hours run from 5:30 p.m. to midnight, and you can make a reservation through the restaurant.
