Gin and all that Jazz

Next Thursday, June 15th marks the second of Bistro 72’s Patio Series, Gin & Jazz. The event will highlight Brockmans Premium Gin and the music of local musician Johnny Sax.  

Brockmans is a super premium gin that hails from London. Its popularity across the pond gave rise to an expansion of its sale into the Northeast. Overall, the mouthfeel of this gin is smooth, yet a rich and flavorful. Its unique flavor profile comes from an innovative combination of Bulgarian coriander, which has an aromatic, almost gingery orange flavor, that pairs well with the softer, more rounded harmonies of the blueberries, blackberries and dry, bittersweet Valencia oranges peel incorporated in the gin.

Long Island-based musician Johnny Sax will be performing smooth jazz, fusion, and standards into the night. He’s performed at venues across Long Island for over 20 years and can play the saxophone, flute, clarinet, and guitar. Though he sometimes plays events accompanied by fellow musicians as a duo, trio, quartet, tonight we’ll have Mr. Johnny Sax all to ourselves.

No ticket purchase is required, so come visit us on the patio at Bistro 72 for an evening of great outdoor live music and signature libations. If you can’t make this particular event, check out our other themed Patio Series events here. A prix fixe dinner will be available:

Dine with Dad this Father’s Day

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18th and we’ve crafted a special, prix fixe menu just for the occasion. For $50 Per Person, plus tax & gratuity, you can enjoy three courses of locally inspired dishes and a complimentary beer, glass of wine, or cocktail.

The menu opens with a starter: your choice of Seafood Bisque, an Iceberg Wedge Salad, or a Jumbo Crab Cake made with a spicy aioli.

The mains feature a fried, half chicken served with a side of green beans, homestyle biscuits and a drizzle of honey to balance the savoriness of the meal. If your dad’s more of a seafood guy, he’ll love our Fish & Chips entree, beer-battered cod and hand-cut chips, served with tartar sauce. For the vegetarians, we’re offering Rigatoni Mezzi, rigatoni pasta with fresh mozzarella, pine nuts, roasted tomato, baby spinach, served in a white wine and butter sauce.

For a little extra, dads can help themselves to a 16oz Prime Rib Eye steak with a baked potato and sauteed spinach or our Double Bone Pork Chops served with a mushroom risotto and seasonal vegetables, or our famous Lamb Rack (pictured above) served with mashed potatoes and asparagus in a burgundy sauce.

No meal is complete without dessert. Top off you this Father’s Day dinner with Zabaglione, a marsala custard with vanilla ice cream and biscotti, a classic New York-style cheesecake, or our finest Apple Cobbler.

You can see the full menu here. For reservations, call (631) 369-3325.

Make the Martini Your New Summer Drink

When you think of summer, cocktails like margaritas often come to mind; however, we think you should consider making the martini your new favorite summer drink. Why? They are smooth, refreshing, and versatile enough to complement whatever mood you are in.

Our happy hour menu contains a wide variety of martinis, designed to suit your preferred flavor profile. If you love spicy, hot flavors, you should try our Hot & Dirty Martini, which is made with Absolut Vodka, olive juice and hot sauce (plus, you can add blue cheese olives for an extra $2). If you prefer sweeter drinks, try the Apple Orchard Martini which is made with Absolut Vodka and an apple liqueur. If you prefer a tart, yet sweet cocktail, try our Limonata Martini, made with limoncello, a lemon liqueur native to Italy, pomegranate liqueur, and prosecco. During our all-new happy hour every Friday from 4pm – 7pm, these martinis are only $8.

From 5pm – 9pm every Friday, there’s also live music, either in the restaurant or outside on the patio (weather-permitting.) This week’s entertainment will be provided by local musician, Michael Duca. His acoustic adaptations of covers range from Elvis and The Beatles up to and including top artists of today like The Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Mumford & Sons, Adele, Jack Johnson and Eminem. Combined with his original works his creativity and talent always leaves the crowd entertained and often requesting something new enabling him to continuously build his repertoire.

All-New Happy Hour 4pm – 7pm

We’re pleased to announce we’re kicking off a new tradition this month, a weekly happy hour! Every Friday from 4pm – 7pm, we’ll offer drinks at a discount and delicious appetizers. You’ll also be able to enjoy live music by local musicians from 5pm – 9pm.

The happy hour features our newest cocktail creation–Bistro Bowl Cocktails. We mix up these amazing drinks in large glass bowls, so you can share it with friends, if you’d like. The pièce de résistance of these cocktails is dry ice, which we put in every cocktail, so each exudes a sultry and mysterious “smoke.”

This week’s live musician is Melanie Morin, a singer/songwriter from Long Island, NY. She performs a wide range of music from classic tunes to 90s jams, all with her own twist. She also encourages her fans and listeners to sing along and groove to her tunes! Check out the full schedule of upcoming musicians online here: indigoeastend.com/events and see the full cocktail and food menu below.

Make a reservation and join in on the fun by calling (631) 369-3325. However, drop-ins are always welcome. We look forward to serving you!
