IN THE HOOD – LOWER EAST SIDE: SEL RROSE

selrrose3

Last night we stopped into the recently opened Sel Rrose at 1 Delancey street (Delancey and Bowery) in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Named after the female alter ego of artist Marcel Duchamp and with decaying brick walls inspired by early 20th Century Paris, the signless box of a bar might be easy for passersby to miss. According to owner Kristin Vincent (Home Sweet Home, Fig. 19) Sel Rrose is still searching for the right signage, and they never intended to hype their new spot, but rather let the right people find their ways in. Inside there’s a cocktail for everyone, and patrons are encouraged to order something special rather than a classic like a dirty Martini (OAK recommends the Le Moult and the off-the-menu Penicillin for whiskey lovers). Sel Rrose also offers an incredible raw bar selection (the dollar oyster happy hour is everyday from 5pm – 7pm), and small plates including a unique take on the lobster roll that we’re definitely going back for.
