Wassail: Apple Picking NYC Style

Posted by Lorela Blaka on Oct 24, 2016 2:26:22 PM

If you want to go apple picking without leaving the city, visit Wassail. Right on Orchard St, you have 90+ apple...ciders. You won't have take the trip to an orchard, you won't have to lug around a bag of apples, and you get to drink. Honestly, this might be the future of "apple picking."

Wassail is redefining the fall experience by providing customers with the best cider flavors around town. The warm-colored drinks match the warm environment, making it an unforgettable and amiable experience. If you love cider, Wassail should be on the top of your list.

The Drinks

This bar and restaurant has something for everyone, whether you’re a long-time cider aficionado or just looking to try something new!

If you are a cider newbie, do not fret: there’s an American and International cider flight for you to get your feet wet. I promise it will get you educated and hooked. Besides, who doesn’t love sampling? And if you are a longtime cider lover, the selection is so huge that there’s always something new to try! You just might have a hard time making up your mind!

Don’t feel you have to limit yourself to cider either--try a calvados, apple brandy, pommeau drink. I recommend going for happy hour and trying the Daily Punch (only $5!). The flavor changes everyday, and it usually has a pretty garnish for an envy-worthy Instagram pic!

The Food

Next is the food. I know what you’re thinking, it may not be all that special because the drinks are the main focus. Wrong. In their menu, it is apparent that they know how to get creative with their vegetables. Delicata Squash, Stracciatella, and the spicy Smoked Potato Croquettes are some notable dishes!

They even have a mouthwatering brunch menu available on the weekend and holidays. A buckwheat galette and a French cider can transport you to Brittany, France--but I have my eye on the Brioche French Toast with maple syrup poached apples!

Bottom line is that Wassail has revolutionized the cider and food experience making it the perfect spot for everything from casual client dinners to date nights. Whatever you end up choosing you’re bound to have a memorable fall evening at this unique bar and restaurant! Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on this wonderful place!
