Clinton Hall The Best Pina Colada’s In Town

Clinton Hall The Best Pina Colada’s In Town

Clinton Hall

Next to the new Pod 51, 230 East 51st Street, sits Clinton Hall a gastro pub, which is known for their exciting craft ale’s known as SUPERCRAFT™. Featuring 20 draught beers and ciders on rotation, they range from keg-conditioned lagers from the US, to Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia and beyond. By controlling the exact gas blend for each beer recipe through this system, every single beer offered at Clinton Hall is served at its scientifically engineered best.

My guest started with a handcrafted beer ($6-8), but when he tasted my drink, that was the end of that. Not being a beer fan, I tried their Pina Colada’s a non dairy delight, infused with cinnamon rum, Coco Lopez, pineapple juice and vanilla, garnished with a charred candied pineapple and 2 brandied cherries ($12). This Pina Colada was the best I have ever had and is my drink of choice, when I do drink. What was so amazing about this Pina Colada, was that though it was satisfying, it didn’t fill you up or make you feel as if you gained a million pounds. We also tried the Frozen Sangria with port wine, rye, grapefruit liquor, passion fruit puree and lemon juice, garnished with the same tasty condiment ($12), which was also a delightful spin on a classic.

Crispy Rock Shrimp

As our starter, crispy rock shrimp with spicy yuzu aioli ($14). This generous portion was non greasy, utterly tasty and even though we knew we had burgers coming, we finished the entire dish. Yum!

The yummy burgers

Complementing the drinks were an assortment of unique burgers. My guest had the Clinton Hall Dry-Aged Burger ($19). This 28 day dry-aged burger patty, is served with Swiss cheese, IPA caramelized onion and horseradish cream. Perfectly cooked and so wonderful, my guest loved the burger so much he finished it, even though we were stuffed. I had the Bacon, Bacon, Bacon ($15), 50/50 bacon/beef burger, Vermont cheddar, topped with heaps of nueske & applewood smoked bacon, and a dollop spicy grain mustard. This was by far one terrific burger. All the flavors sang in your mouth. This is a bacon lovers heaven. The burgers are served with french fries and a pickle, we subbed out for Parmesan Truffle Fries ($10), which were a decadent treat. Rich and flavorful these are definitely a sinful surprise.

Pina Colada

For dessert we were overly stuffed, but that Pina Colada was calling our names, yet again. I can not wait until Clinton Hall comes to Times Square, well maybe I can because this could easily become an addictive habit.
