Mediterranean snack and cocktail lounge, REYNA, has brought its sensational bar program to NYC from Toronto for a fabulous opening that’s sure to reign above others. Owner Nicki Laborie describes the NYC opening as “a dream come true” after starting their career in NYC 30 years prior.
The Union Square space embodies a “rich and feminine” atmosphere embellished with shades of rose, teal, gold and white. Designer Delphine from DM Design and Laborie worked to create a welcoming space that fits for a quick cocktail drop-in or a longer, luxurious dining experience.
Deriving from bold Mediterranean flavors, REYNA’s menu draws inspiration from Spanish, Greek, Italian and Arabic cuisines. Helmed by Chef Andrew Lott, dish highlights include Manchego and Cauliflower Croquettes (our personal favorite), Lebanese “Tacos,” and Lamb Baklava.
Order from a clever list of cocktails including the “Please Sir, Some Meux” made with brie cheese fat washed Woodford bourbon, pear and walnut syrup, lemon, egg
white, cabernet sauvignon, chambord and scorched pear bitters, or “Eleanor’s Mistress” with fig and white mustard infused gin mare, paw paw liqueur, apple thyme syrup, white port, pares balta cava, lemon and fig and fennel bitters.
