Slightly Oliver, a cocktail-themed gastropub located at 511 Amsterdam Avenue, opens on November 3. There will be a good crew on the payroll, including Jason Hicks (Jones Wood Foundry), Luis Ulloa (Tolani), pyro’ Albert Trummer, and Orson Salicetti (Apotheke and Theater Bar). The menu features fish and chips, steak and kidney pie, housemade macaroni and cheese, and sticky toffee pudding; the cocktail menu is splashed with five-ingredient punches and Prohibition-era interpretations — because no one else is doing that!
