About Counter:

Counter has one of the most extensive organic & biodynamic wine lists of its kind. Add a healthy helping of house-infused organic martinis, cocktails, & every organic beer and spirit available and Counter is truly one-of-a-kind. As quoted by Jonathan Miles of the New York Times, "The epicenter of organic cocktails … is the bar at Counter, an East Village vegetarian-slash-vegan bistro that's been slinging all-organic drinks-and nothing but-since adding hard liquor to its menu.”
