The best bar in Queens has got to be Dutch Kills.
The drinks. With a unique drink menu, and the encouragement to order “bartenders choice”, it’s all up to your imagination. Everything was delicious. 
The ice. I’d never seen such a huge cube of ice as in my first cocktail. Ordered from an ice sculptor, the big blocks are called “cakes”. Watch video here for more info.
Our drink orders included:HERS:Golden Delicious (Applejack, Honey syrup, Lime Juice)Gershwin (Gin, Lemon Juice, Ginger Syrup, Rose Water)Hot Buttered Rum (Rum, Spice Butter, Nutmeg)
HIS:Mexican Firing Squad (Tequila, Grenadine, Lime, Bitters, Ginger Beer)El Diablo (Tequila, Ginger Syrup, Lime Juice, Creme de Cassis, Soda Water)Mexican Coffee (Tequila, Espresso, Cream, Mint leaf, Water)

Dirty Ketel One Martini at Dillingers in Queens. Not the best of anything. I asked the bartender if he had a favorite mixed drink and he was uninspired/uninspiring. Also the burger was just so so. A big “eh” all around.

One of the in house photographers is leaving my company, so we lunched at Kumo just down the road as a goodbye. I am a frequent visitor of this japanese restaurant (when the weather is warm enough for the walk), but I had not yet tried their sake selection. That changed today! I favor cold sake, and found a new favorite in the dry Ozeki Sake. It was quite the mid day treat. (I’m also pretty excited about how the photo turned out).
