Like the East Village's answer to Cheers, The Smith is a cozy refuge where, even if the staff doesn't know your name, they'll pretend to. Now Upper West Siders can seek the same gut warming serenity at the restaurant's Lincoln Center location, which opened earlier this month. If you's rather find comfort in a glass than on your plate, try the restaurant's recipe for The Sweet Wilbur, a musky combination of apple cider, bourbon and bacon bitters.

The Drink: The Sweet Wilbur

The Bar: The Smith Lincoln Center

The Price: $13

The Ingredients: 1.5oz. Bourbon, .5oz. Sugar maple liqueur, .5oz. lemon juice, Dash of allspice dram (really just a touch), 1.25 apple cider, 2 dash Ms. Piggy bitters, Garnish: Vanilla salt rim

The Method: Add ingredients to glass cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Pour into a double old fashion glass over fresh ice. Garnish.
