Checking in with Matt Levine: "People are scared of the unknown and intimidated by creativity. Even if those people have never gotten into The Eldridge, never had one of our signature cocktails, never experienced our service and never met me, they can speak as though they had. I respect every opinion, blogger, commenter and 'hater'...but in all honesty, the only thing that matters is 11pm to 4am each night, and the experience of my guests, which has been amazing and positive."
