Yesterday’s Indie Spirits tasting at the Penn Club in Midtown was a thoroughly apropos wrap-up to this year’s Manhattan Cocktail Classic.
We’re pretty proud of the work we do here at Edible, but it’s nice to hear when other people like what we publish (who doesn’t enjoy a compliment here and there?). The recently released Best Food Writing 2012 includes two stories from Edible Manhattan, as well as several stories from our sister Edibles around the country.

From seediness to scenesters, one bartender’s career bears witness to Gotham’s evolving liquor landscape.
Plotting our namesake cocktail’s legacy.
