Windmill - Cocktails on Clinton Street

mitchleeny | Aug 12, 201808:18 AM     2

Windmill is the new venture from Sother Teague and Max Green et al. Sother is one of the mad geniuses behind the tiny Amor y Amargo (not that this place is much bigger) and Blue Quarter, was an opening hand at Booker & Dax, and evidently has even taken over the reins at Le French Diner on Orchard Street, for short stints while its owners went on vacation.

Windmill is a collaborative effort, with food being provided by the minds behind Le French Diner (a place we haven't been to in years). The menu is short and snacky, but last night we didn't eat, having just come from Kings County Imperial Delancey Street.

I'll just say this - it's so nice to have an experienced bartender/host serve you, as Sother was behind the stick. We started with two drinks from the menu ($13 each); Sig Eater had a Double Barrel Old Fashioned, while I had a lighter drink, a Summer Breeze, Pineau de Charentes based. Both delicious. And then I asked for an after dinner drink, not boozy like a Saz, but bitter, and Sig asked for an amaro based drink. We were served two delicious cocktails, mine shall remain nameless, as I don't remember its name (it had Cynar in it), and hers was a Waterproof Watch, evidently a winning drink of Sother's, based on the Negroni, but with Amaro Montenegro, a favorite of ours.

Looking forward to a return visit, and trying some of the snacks - nice to have in the 'hood.
