As 2018 gets ramped up, I’ve avoided a standard list of resolutions again this year (confused: check out this post), but I do have a 2018 to-do list. On the tippy top is to get out and about more. Since this is Apt34’s 10th anniversary, I really want to focus on the making the most of every moment this year. And most moments I’m thinking about food. That includes exploring restaurants, bars, coffee shops in San Francisco and the Bay Area, but also beyond. There are so many good spots that need to be seen and experienced so I thought instead of simply screen shotting Instagrams, I would share my finds here. I’m going to call this series Delicious Spaces – any and every space I want to both dine and simply hang out this year.
First on my list requires a return to New York, but that’s just fine with me. Sel Rrose is a raw bar on the Lower East Side. You don’t have to sell me hard on oysters and champagne but when you put them in such a gorgeous setting I’m ready to book a ticket. The restaurant, on the corner of Delancey and Bowery, juxtaposes a rough industrial vibe with softer edges like custom wallpaper designed by Candice Kaye.
The menu features a revolving variety of daily fresh oysters, full raw bar and a selection of seasonal and well-constructed French inflected plates. The bar offers a French-focused cocktail list, featuring guest favorite, the effervescent house prosecco, alongside an array of premium spirits, natural wines and select beers on tap.
Sel Rrose offers a daily oyster happy hour from 4:00pm. to 7:00pm, ideal for a cozy winter evenings in the city. So if you’re in New York, go and have a drink on me and tag your instagram #deliciousspaces. I’ll be tracking and reposting favorites!
