Ghost Donkey

OPENED1115 DAYS AGO

Ghost Donkey is a newly opened spot on Bleecker Street, where there are only two things required to guarantee a good night: nachos and mezcal.

Ghost Donkey may have some competition with other Mexican restaurant openings in downtown Manhattan – Guac and the new hot spot Lalo for example. But this one has backing from the AvroKO Hospitality Group, who are responsible for some of the more eccentric drinking options in Manhattan. Ghost Donkey is a perfect example of their expertise.

Don’t be fooled by the name either, as there’s nothing ghostly about the Donkeys here, which also feature prominently throughout the space in many forms from donkey-figurine cocktail cups to a life-size donkey decked out in flowers.

Come here for the Mexican-inspired sharing plates that Chef, Brad Farmer (Saxon + Parole, Public) has curated with a focus on gourmet nachos. Go for a grilled shrimp version with cheddar-ancho sauce and tomatillo salsa or a version with mole chicken instead.

Other small plates include a salmon ceviche or jicama, mango and pineapple dusted in chili salt. For the drinks part, mezcal takes the lead role and features in signature cocktails like the ‘El Burro Fantasma’ made with mezcal, aperol, agave, lime, pink grapefruit and chili and the ‘Mushroom Margarita’ made with mezcal, triple sec, lime and lava salt.

There will also be popsicles from NYC’s famed La Newyorkina featured in another cocktail called ‘Prosecco & Paletitas’ which includes a popsicle swimming in sparkling wine.

Ghost Donkey is covered in red Christmas lights throughout the space, colorfully embroidered pillows and of course, donkeys, everywhere. The space itself is modern and colorful featuring infinity mirrors.

Ghost Donkey is closed on Sundays.
