Lower East Side has a great new addition, Delilah! Hospitality veteran Mino Habib responsible for opening quite a few successful venues as The DL, Veranda and The Attic Rooftop is at it again. Charming place opened this week and it is a must visit new destination for delicious food, great cocktails and late night partying.
French glass doors, communal table and exposed brick walls reflect the edgy vibe of the LES. Behind a velvet curtain is the opulent lounge with velvet DJ booth and blue plush velvet banquettes all designed by Mino Habib himself.
“Delilah is amorous, coquettish and confident woman that charms you and makes you fall in love with her personality and confidence. This is what we want our guests to feel when they come to Delilah. To fall in love with the place!” says Mino Habib.
We met mixologist Rael Petit who created Delilah’s signature cocktails and tested out more than one specialty from the menu ( don’t tell anyone). Our favorite was Rivington on Fire. I am big fan of classic cocktails so Paper Plane was my next favorite.
Executive Chef Kevin O’Connell created a modern, cool twist on Mediterranean and Northern African cuisine served as tapas and perfect for sharing. Spicy lamb sliders and meatballs are perfect for meat lovers and there are lobster pita crisps we recommend for seafood fans.
Delilah address: 155 Rivington Street open seven days a week 4pm – 4am
