Grant Achatz has today announced he will be opening a second location of his world famous Aviary cocktail bar in New York.
In a project that's been in the works for years, Achatz, alongside bartender Micah Melton and business partner Nick Kokonas, will open Aviary New York inside the Mandarin Oriental hotel at Colombus Circle.

Mysterious pictures posted a few weeks ago by both Achatz and Kokonas led many to speculate about what the new project may be. We can now confirm that both those snaps were of the work in progress at Aviary New York.
The first Aviary, which opened in Chicago in 2011, is classed as one of the world's best cocktail bars. It's famous for offering creative cocktails alongside Achatz's signature cooking condensed into mini bites.
Juicy details of the project are still under wraps but Aviary New York is expected to open summer 2017.
