The Derby Restaurant Celebrates The Belmont Races
The Derby will celebrate the Belmont Stakes with two drink specials and a viewing of the races on large projector screens. Patrons can watch the Triple Crown hopeful race for this prestigious title at the Lower East Side’s newest hotspot for biscuits, bourbon and southern hospitality.
The Derby will be serving the Chrome Old-Fashioned with a New York State clear rye-whiskey, made close to Belmont, that stays clear white because it is not aged in wood barrels. Mixed with cherry and grapefruit, the citrus fresh taste will cool patrons down while they watch the invigorating race.
In true Derby fashion, the classic Mint Julep with crushed ice will be served on Saturday as well during the Belmont Stakes. Coverage of the event starts on NBC at 4pm.
