Porchlight, Danny Meyer’s new bar on the far west side of Chelsea in the Terminal Warehouse, is quite spacious yet still maintains a cozy and homey atmosphere. On my first visit, its New York Sour, a cocktail of Rittenhouse rye, lemon and egg white, shaken then drizzled with red wine, was picture-perfect and a gratifying choice to start my happy hour. In fact, I was so enamored of this drink both visually and in taste that I went back a week later to try it again. Herein lies the problem: I had a different bartender this time, and as you can see in the below photo, the drink I was served looked nothing like the first. Perhaps I was thrown off by its appearance, but it also did not taste as good. A third bartender came over as I looked puzzled and asked me if anything was wrong; I showed him my original photo. He said that it looked like someone had gone red wine happy, and tried to replicate it by drizzling more red wine on my drink, which only made it worse because the proportion now tasted off. This lack of consistency is something I didn’t expect from Union Square Hospitality Group. While on my first visit I was giddily satisfied with the drinks, food and service and would have recommended Porchlight as a destination, I now think it’s more of a place to grab a drink and a bite if you’re already in the neighborhood. For finger foods, try the boiled-peanut hummus and “Tom’s Balls” (deep-fried boudin balls made with chicken liver, pork shoulder and dirty rice).
