Nobody Told Me – A New Cocktail Bar + Unique Eatery

  Last modified on January 30th, 2020

Nobody Told Me, located at 951 Amsterdam (between 106th and 107th Streets), had their soft opening in May – but officially opened in early June with a finalized menu. And there at least a few menu items you’ve never had, or even thought about.

The new UWS bar comes from Chef Nick Pfannerstill, who has worked at two popular UWS restaurants: Cafe Boulud and Dovetail (before Dovetail became Leonti). He’s created some pretty interesting menus, both food and drink wise.

Starting with the drinks (as we do) – they have 10 cocktails. These are listed in two sections; twists on classics and original creations. The owner also told us they have four rotating drafts and two cans (Tecate and Founders Solid Gold).


Here are a few of their cocktails:

The “Guilty of Everything” – with pineapple infused rum, carpano bianco, banana du Brazil and bitters.

The “Carbonated Cosmo” – made with citrus infused vodka, Cointreau, acid adjusted cranberry and pomegranate.

And their “Pepper Jelly Julep” – with bourbon, ancho pepper liquor, pepper jelly and mint.
