Plain old peanuts wouldn't do for a bar snack at Vandaag, one of the city's few Dutch restaurants, located in the East Village. Here, juniper-flavored pecans are the nibble with which to tipple. Lightly coated in sugar and tossed with the ground purple-black berries plus a hint of cayenne, these crunchy nuts perfectly complement the eatery's many cocktails made with juniper-based Genever, also known as Holland gin. Try an order or two along with the namesake gin cocktail (Bols Genever, saison ale syrup, bitters, and absinthe), and you might just want to forgo dinner all together. 103 Second Avenue, 212-253-0470, vandaagnyc.com (10003)
