German booze alchemist Alex Ott develops the madcap cocktail menu atop the Refinery Hotel, drawing on a biochemistry degree and an affinity for obscure aromas. His vibrant ingredients (curry powder, seedless raspberry jam) are in sync with the savory menu of pork belly sliders and catfish po’boys by Jeffrey Forrest, winner of the Food Network’s reality show Chopped. Views of the Empire State Building make the porch swing laden terrace a hit, while the retractable glass roof and cozy fireplace keep the after-work crowd coming long after summer fades.
