Pine & Polk is NYC’s newest provisions store, offering a selection of high-quality and artisanal charcuterie, condiments, floral bouquets, grab-and-go options and more!
The establishment comes from the powerful friendship duo, Lindsay Weiss and Alyssa Golub, who met years ago in San Francisco when they both lived on the intersection of Pine & Polk.
Approximately 60-80% of the shops inventory features women/minority-owned brands and businesses. Visitors can purchase exclusive products from NYC’s top female chefs like Ayesha Nurdjaja’s (Shuka, Shukette) dips, and Esther Choi’s (Mokbar) kimchi, along with rare goods only found at Pine & Polk like a cookie by Gage & Tollner’s Caroline Schiff and granola from Nana Joe’s.
But what this Hudson Square provisions shop is really keeping on the hush-hush is even more special than all of its specialty offerings.
While perusing the store, locate a a disguised door…PS, there’s an even sweeter surprise on the other side of all those chocolate bars!
Behind the cocoa cover lies a secret cocktail bar called PS (as in Pacific Standard). Guests will be awestruck by the spacious backlit bar and inviting lounge area that beckons shoppers to take a seat and have a sip.
Many details of the speakeasy-style bar are an ode to the pair’s West Coast history, such as a statement tapestry inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge and their wine program that highlights West Coast vintners, primarily female and minority-owned.
As for cocktails, PS presents an expansive list of 12 signature cocktails and 6 remained classics.
With Bar Director Melissa Brooke, the team puts forth bold flavor combinations and unassuming ingredients for an unforgettable drink menu you can’t find anywhere else.
Order A Splendid Day, similar to a matcha latte but boozier and dairy-free, with genever, mizu shochu sakura, matcha, honeydew, coconut milk, or A Martini Moment that comes with a seasonal bouquet of pickled vegetables & fruit, and your choice of spirit: gin, pink gin, or vodka. But you most definitely have to try our personal favorite called Minus Three, made with mezcal, avocado, lemongrass, salted corn, jalapeño, and street corn seasoning—trust us on this one!
Pair your cocktails with one of their five savory boards featuring an array of veggies, dips, cured meats and more. And if your tastebuds stumble upon something they really like (which is sure to happen), you can find most of the items and ingredients on the food menu being sold at the front of the shop.
So, why not treat yourself at Pine & Polk by turning your next shopping trip into a night of delicious drinks? We’ll keep it a secret why your “errands” took a few extra hours if you do too!
