Adriaen Block

OPENED72 DAYS AGO

Queens welcomes a CBD-focused restaurant and bar, Adriaen Block.

New York is catching up with LA’s latest health trend – Adriaen Block offers a menu with cannabidiol-infused drinks and dishes. Commonly referred to as CBD, cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant, which has been praised for its benefits on the mind and body. From reducing anxiety and inflammatation to enhancing your productivity and sexual pleasure – this legal chemical compound is therapeutic without the high.

Adriaen Block - Rolled Fashioned with CBD

The Spot:

While owner Zsolt “George” Csonka (of The One Group, the hospitality group behind STK) has years of experience in bars and nightclubs, his focus has shifted to food and health trends. It’s safe to say Adriaen Block is definitely on trend, offering drinks made with CBD tinctures and a “munchies” menu with CBD-infused sauce…

The Food:

So what will you be munching on? The menu highlights grilled meats and seafood, including thickly cut Nueske’s bacon, wild salmon, and three cuts of steak – all available with that all-important CBD-infused sauce. If you’re looking for something vegetarian, Adriaen Block also serves a veggie burger on naan bread (topped with caramelized onions, plum tomato jam and feta) and grilled pita bread with eggplant spread. Dessert gets a helping of the chemical compound too, offering options such as key lime pie or molten chocolate cake with CBD-infused whipped cream.

The Drinks:

Spiked with cannabidiol, signature cocktails include the aptly named Stoney Negroni with Cocchi Americano and sherry, and the Mellow Berry with house blackberry shrub – although you won’t actually get high from these drinks. The Bakin’ & Eggs cocktail looks pretty impressive too, bringing together CBD with a slice of crispy bacon – does it get any better?

Adriaen Block - Beyond Burger

You can get your dose of CBD in non-alcoholic drinks too: the Garden & Tonic features Seedlip Garden (the world’s first distilled non‑alcoholic spirit), Indian tonic and fresh peas.

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $10 and $29, excluding the CBD sauce, which costs $7. All CBD-infused drinks are priced at $15.

In a Nutshell:

While CBD makes an appearance in New York on 4/20 (the marijuana holiday), most restaurants and bars haven’t made the compound a permanent feature on their menu – yet. Adriaen Block is definitely leading the way here, and we’re excited to see how this trend evolves.
