Reyna, the flamboyant cocktail bar near Union Square, is best known for its creative libations. Cocktails like the Eleanor’s Mistress, a drink named after Eleanor Roosevelt, who once said, “If life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.”

The drink is served tableside inside a lantern. It’s made with Gin Mare infused with fig and white mustard seed, paw paw liqueur, apple and thyme syrup, white port, champagne, lemon juice, and fig and fennel bitters. The cocktail is topped with a white rose. It costs $25. In all, there are nearly two dozen signature drinks with names like King Arthur’s Concubine, The Queen Likes It Hot, and Corpse Reviver.

Aside from cocktails, Reyna is also known for its inventive Mediterranean bites.
