I know we’ve already reported at length about the new vibe (casual) and new concept (not so French) at Aix Restaurant and Wine Bar at 719 East 17th Avenue. I know we’ve talked about alterations made in light of the current economy, talking Aix back to a classic bistro model.
But screw all that, because Aix is now getting in on that most American of traditions: the happy hour.
In this case, it’s a whole happy night -- from 3-7 p.m. in the kitchen, 10 p.m. at the bar -- and the menu I just got for tonight’s lineup is awesome. Open-face ham and cheese sandwiches on baguette, crab and lobster ceviche with homemade chips, arugula salad and gazpacho are all on the board, as well as Aix cosmos and Black Light syrah by the glass -- all at just five bucks a pop.
So why are you still sitting around reading this? Get down there now and get a jump on the weekend. -- Jason Sheehan
