A while back we did the unspeakable by releasing Milk and Honeys number to the masses (sort of). Yesterday a reader wrote in to let us know that the number had been disconnected. Seems the bar is closed while it turns its basement (where it makes its precious ice) into the offices of Cuff and Buttons, the catering service run by former bartenders Christy Pope and Chad Solomon. The good news: A new number is being released today (even more exciting than a new edition of Harry Potter!), and the bar should reopen sometime next week.
Some additional Sasha Petraske news to chew on while you wait for this, and for the imminent opening of his East Village caf, now called the Mercury Dime: The Long Island project we mentioned earlier now has a name and concept, and an opening month of November. Dutch Kills will be, according to Petraske, an American saloon in LIC [on the] corner of Jackson Avenue and Dutch Kills Road. Think P.J. Clarkes meets Little Branch. Yes, and think butt meets bar stool!
