Escape the NYC Heat with These Cocktails at Nolita’s Kimika

Nolita’s Kimika opened in the summer of 2020 at the bottom of the Nolitan Hotel and has been making it’s mark on the neighborhood ever since with it’s signature Japanese-Italian blend. The unusual combination serves up delicious surprises like it’s wonton-esque pizzettes and sake martini’s that beautifully blend the unique flavors.
