imbued tequila base, down to the tiny dropper loaded with ambrosial liqueur made from violet petals. Remember Jeff Koons’ flower-blanketed colossus Split Rocker at the Rockefeller Center two years ago? Skye has made a drink out of it, named the Rocking Horse ($110). A sprinkle of roasted walnut on top adds a crunchy texture to the bourbon and cassis in this mint julep spinoff, while the mint leaves throw in a hint of freshness to the mix of aromas—a perfect palate cleanser in between the savory bar dishes.
Skye is serious about their bar bites. The melt-in-your-mouth Szechuanstyle Black Angus skewers ($180), accompanied with a mildly spicy watermelon chutney, are worth the trip back alone; while the duck confit croquettes ($160) wowed us with a lavish filling of shredded duck confit. With a spectacular view, and creative drinks menu (liquid nitrogen drinks are inbound), it’s looking like we’ll be back every weekend.
