Cedric’s "opens this week on the ground floor of the Shed, the high-profile arts center located where the High Line and Hudson Yards meet in West Chelsea.
"Starting Wednesday, the bar will begin serving cocktails, beer, wine, and bar snacks. Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group brought over a team from Porchlight — the cocktail bar the group opened a few steps away in 2015 — to run day-to-day operations.
"While there will be table service, Cedric’s will focus more on drinks than food, with no reservations accepted. Classics get geeky craft cocktail adjustments: The martini here is made with cucumber-mint vodka, Lillet Blanc, and dry French vermouth, and the “Hudson high step” — Bennett’s personal favorite — is version of a boilermaker where an olive-garnished bourbon cocktail comes with Madeira wine, an herbal liqueur, and bitters, paired with a glass of lager."
