West Village used to house one of the best contemporary Scottish gastropubs with a twist of modern America. Highlands NYC restaurant & bar in downtown New York City brought modern Scotland to New York with its vast assortment of foods and drinks, including brunch on the weekends between 11:30 am and 3:30 pm.
The venue featured several events specials, including the Valentine’s Day $60 per person three-course prix fixe menu that got many couples bursting through the doors. Happy hour was available every day: Monday to Friday between 5 pm and 7 pm and Saturday to Sunday between 3:30 pm and 7 pm.
Highlands NYC was among the best in the New York dining scene, with various awards for the modern twist dishes and Scottish cocktails. The knowledgeable bartenders cooked up mean rum-infused and whisky-filled hand-crafted cocktails that made for a great night of endless fun. The wine and beer list did not disappoint either.
Modern Scottish dishes were the order of the day on the menu list. Executive Chef Timothy Miller brought his creative experience to the restaurant, where he blended Scottish imported ingredients with local produce to create innovative cuisines.
If the main meals were not your go-to dishes at Highlands NYC, the bar provided delectable snacks that were well paired with the drinks.
