Dutch Kills might be the borough outlier of Sasha Petraske’s Big Apple cocktail empire, but it has a magnetism that not only keeps the certified locals coming back, but draws Manhattanites to the hinterlands of Long Island City. The dark, rough hewn, virtually 100 percent wood ambiance is pleasantly demure, and it’s likely that prices also play a small part in the appeal—cocktails here are a few dollars cheaper than usual, perhaps a concession to the cost of the subway ride. But the real draw is the drinks list. Seasoned Mixologist Karin Stanley crafts cocktails that combine Petraske’s emphatic purism with her own bold imagination—the kind that throws chocolate bitters and yeasty Sherry into a lime-spiked añejo tequila bath. Considering the journey, it’s no surprise Dutch Kills is a bar for and by heavy hitters; make the trip—you won’t be sorry.
