It’s shaping up to be a busy season for one of our fave mixologists, Greg Seider (known simply as Seider to true cocktailians). First off, his drink den Summit Bar is having a tree-trimming party next Tuesday — bring in an ornament and get a free holiday punch. Second, he’s celebrating the publication of a promotional book, The Cocktail Collection, that gathers recipes inspired by over 30 destinations in which Starwood’s Luxury Collection Hotels and Resorts has roots (you can read it online below). But most important, he and partner Hamid Rashidzada are teaming up to open a new Italian restaurant in the space that recently housed the Elephant.
According to Feast, Jean Georges alum Kyle Herrman will be preparing “Italian food with high quality ingredients” while Seider does Italy-inspired cocktails like the one you see above. Prima Strada opens in April.
