Notes: These nuts won The New York Press award for "best bar nuts in New York." Every afternoon at about 4:45, a piping hot batch emerges from our ovens and is sent out to the bar, where the sweet rosemary fragrance wafts throughout the restaurant. Though we don't have a television set at our bar, these nuts would probably be a hit in your living room accompanied by a football game and some ice-cold beer.
