Cole's-Greenwich Village

I had the pleasure of eating at Cole's Greenwich Village this past weekend. Located in the triangular space across from Jackson Square Park, the restaurant had a cozy neighborhood vibe. The design incorporated both retro and contemporary elements to evoke a feeling of 1950's Greenwich Village.
They had a superb cocktail menu, filled with classic drinks with a twist.

Here is their recipe for the Cole's Negroni with Lavender Ice:

To make lavender ice: In a saucepan, bring 1 quart water to boil with 4 teaspoons dried lavender flowers, remove from heat and let steep 5 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large ice cube tray and freeze solid.

To make the cocktail: In a mixing glass stir 1 ounce Nolet's Dry Gin, 1 once Campari (or Apersol) and 1 ounce Capano Antica Sweet Vermouth with regular ice, then pour over a lavender ice cube in a rocks glass and garnish with an orange twist.
