More options.

Starting Friday, chefs Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske will introduce a menu of five cocktails, for $12 each, at their restaurant Contra on the Lower East Side. And for the first time ever, all items from the $55 tasting menu will also be available à la carte, with prices ranging from $12 to 16, for guests dining at the bar. Cured meats, cheese, and bread are ready to be sliced for cocktail-hour noshers, too. [Related]
