During this past long weekend, the Mister and I decided to explore the Theater area dining scene before seeing a show on Broadway. We were both in the mood for something Asian, so we decided to go to Haru's Midtown West location. I remember ordering delivery (often) from Haru on Seamless back in my investment banking days, so I figured I'd pay a visit to the restaurant that I accumulated so many takeout boxes and bags during those long work nights.
We started our meal off with a Cucumber Gimlet ($14) and Passion Fruit & Lychee Saketini ($14). Both cocktails are limited-time-only cocktails created to bring a bit of warmth to otherwise chilly temperatures outside. The Cucumber Gimlet, made with fresh cucumber, lime, cilantro and 34-times-distilled Purity vodka, was clean but definitely had a strong kick (the ideal drink if you want to "let loose"). The Passion Fruit & Lychee Saketini was sweet and sugary - the Don Q Pasión rum with nigori sake, lychee purée, and pineapple juice made for the perfect girly girls drink and/or those who like their alcohol masked with fruity goodness LOL.
