Reservations.com is proud to announce a dream job: get a job as a judge of the best Irish coffee in NYC. One lucky applicant will be hired during December to try out the top bars in restaurants in NYC and give us their professional opinion.
There’s nothing as magical as New York City during the holiday season. From the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to The Rink at Rockefeller Center, to nearly every shop decked out in Christmas and holiday decorations.
When the air turns icy, celebratory New Yorkers head for their favourite bar to warm up with a beverage to warm the body and soul. One of the quintessential pick-me-ups during the cold and chaos of the holidays is a comforting Irish coffee. The perfect blend of coffee, sugar, and alcohol, it contains all the major energizers you need to finish your day on a high note. This got us wondering, where is the best place in NYC to order the libation?
