A Closer Look at Gus & Gabriel and Its ‘Flask Service’

Because of air-conditioning problems, Gus & Gabriel didn’t open last night as planned, but we’re assured all systems are go for tonight. You’ve already seen the menu, but before you head over to the new gastropub, you might want to take your first look at the drinks list. Note the option of “flask service,” which allows you to get an eight-ounce pour in a metal flask. And if you spring for a bottle, you can store it in a locker for future visits, much like a Japanese whiskey bar. (If you don’t get uptown often, you might want to think twice about this — we once bought a bottle of shochu at Box Snack Riki, never to return.) Anyway, take a look at Michael Psilakis’s interior design, and the coat of armor we told you about earlier.
