Mr. Fong’s—named in honor of the real estate agent who helped the owners find the space—has quickly become a Lower Manhattan hotspot. And it’s no wonder: managing partners Aisa Blue Shelley and Lucas Moran have tended bar at many of the city’s top spots, from Bungalow 8 to the Wythe Hotel’s rooftop bar. The bar’s design is simple but sophisticated: a green onyx countertop, red leather booths, potted palms, and paintings loaned from a friend who owns a gallery in Brooklyn. House cocktails are all stirred drinks that seem deceptively simple, but contain infusions using ingredients culled from the neighborhood’s markets. Case in point: the rum and pineapple drink made with Thai chile, cilantro-infused rum, and housemade pineapple syrup.
