Beginning Monday, June 15th, Happy Hour at Abe Fisher is getting a lot more civilized. As the days stretch out towards summer, so does Abe Fisher’s happy hour, extending a full extra hour from opening at 5 pm all the way to 7 pm. In addition, the new Happy Hours will be honored on the weekend as well, making Abe Fisher a 7-day destination for treating yourself right.
“The real Abe Fisher enjoyed a cocktail (or two),” says manager and CookNSolo Beverage Director Brian Kane. “But he worked hard, and would have found it very difficult to have his martini in hand by 6 pm. Happy Hour is not about rushing; it’s about slowing down after a long day. Abe would have found a two-hour happy hour very civilized.”
In addition to offering every cocktail and wine-by-the-glass for just $7, Chef Yehuda Sichel has added a happy hour menu based around Abe Fisher’s house-made Jewish rye bread. Sichel will offer a rotating trio of mini open-faced sandwiches for $5. Featured items include Smoked Tongue with Pickled Green Tomatoes; Spicy Tuna with Radish and Hungarian Peppers; Chopped Duck Liver with Hard-Boiled Egg; Cucumber and Boursin Cheese; Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Aged Gouda; Pulled Veal Breast with Coleslaw; Tuna Melt with Pickled Ramps; Avocado with Spicy Hazelnuts; Corn and Truffle.
Guests can wash down these savory morsels with one of 16 wines by the glass ($7), poured from the restaurant’s state of the art wine preservation system. For a stronger tonic, happy hour is the perfect time to explore the bar’s extensive selection of amaros, featured prominently in cocktails ($7) such as The Fedora (bourbon, campari, cocchi Americano and yellow chartreuse), and Gentlemen Say Please (scotch, cocchi rossa and luxardo amaro).
Happy hour is available at the bar only, but Abe Fisher’s 4-course, $39 prix fixe menu is offered whenever the restaurant is open.
