Dine like ‘Mad Men:’ NYC restaurants unveil specials to celebrate series finale

Food—particularly cocktails—play an integral part of “Mad Men,” Matthew Weiner’s hit show focusing on Park Avenue ad executive life during the 1960’s.

While many of us still wish we could sling back whiskeys at work, several New York City restaurants are offering a discounted lunch special that will have you feeling just like Don Draper.

From March 23 through the 29, several big name restaurants like Delmonico’s, Morton’s, Le Cirque and others will offer a choice between two cocktails or two-course prix-fixe menu items—for an era-worthy price of just $19.69.

While many of the restaurants are just offering the cocktail special.  The Gander has Betty’s BB Gun, a delicious sounding potion of bourbon, benedictine (an herbal liqueur), cognac, honey, lemon—and the food offerings at several eateries sound pretty good too.

The Madison Club is offering diners shrimp cocktail with horseradish dipping sauce and beef wellington finished with chasseur sauce, while Le Cirque has red cabbage soup, Poulet à la Royale (chicken in puff pastry) and Ile Flottante, a French custard dessert of which we’re sure Megan Draper would approve.

So mourn the end of the iconic series with a great meal, a great cocktail—or two.
