Thyme & Tonic: A Brand New “Garden-To-Glass” Bar and Restaurant

Thyme & Tonic has just opened at 474 Columbus Avenue, right off the corner of 83rd Street. This new “garden to glass” bar and restaurant is bringing antioxidant-filled cocktails and elixirs made with fresh juices to the Upper West Side. The food menu consists of 95% vegan bar-foods; the few non-vegan items are fish plates. Most of the menu is also gluten-free and tree-nut free.

If you ever dined at Spring, their predecessor, you know the space is beautiful. Here’s an outside glimpse of what Thyme & Tonic has done with it.

Thyme & Tonic offers a wide variety of fresh and floral cocktails like their grapefruit fizz, cucumber refresher, and their own in-house craft gin & tonics.

They also offer a number of non-alcoholic juices: try their orange, turmeric, black pepper tincture!

I tried a bunch of their plates – some vegan, some not. But all were light, fresh and delicious.

The tuna tartare and Mahi Mahi tacos are two of their non-vegan plates; both bursting with flavor.
