Time Out New York gives Jack the Horse Tavern [66 Hicks Street] a huge rave in this week’s edition:
Time Out New York: But the bar attracts a devoted clientele of its own; on a recent weekday night, there was no wait for a table, but barstools were at a premium. This is largely due to the precocious wizardry and attentive service of Jack’s boyish head bartender, Maxwell Britten, who shakes up the cocktail menu weekly… The atmosphere at the bar is convivial, and you’re as likely to get into a conversation with the stranger next to you as you are with Britten, who’s known to try out new concoctions on willing patrons. If he offers, let him do as he likes. His is a horse worth betting on.
