Sugar Momma is the Newest Jumpoff Spot in the Financial District


Housed inside a coffee shop called Hole in the Wall, Sugar Momma is FiDi’s newest secret dining and cocktail location. Sugar Momma is that cute jumpoff spot where you'd meet an online date or the squad to start pre-gaming. The 40-seat restaurant is giving you “Red Light Special” with its grown and sexy, yet playful vibe. What completely won me over was the 90s hip hop playing all night (which happens every Friday). When the brightly lit coffee shop goes dark, Sugar Momma comes alive. The coffee bar hides behind yellow curtains and only the bartender and sneak peek of the kitchen can be seen. The cultural timewarp is shocking to the senses—from hipster waiters buzzing around to the underscore of "Rosa Parks" by Outkast to a movie musical from the 1940s is being projected on the back wall; not to mention a red neon sign saying “Hello Gorgeous.”


Executive Chef Brent Hudson presents a small plates menu including a crispy pork dish (soy caramel, sour apple, picked herbs & cashews), a shrimp and crab cracker (remoulade and avocado puree), east coast oysters and Burrata with shaved melon and prosciutto. If you're feling hungry, there's the signature truffle beef and ‘shroom burger (crispy bacon, caramelized onions, house pickles and special sauce), grass-fed wagyu rib eye (XO mushroom butter, broccolini and garlic chives), satay curry chicken and the ability to roll your own brisket tacos.


Lead mixologist Ryan Byrnes is responsible for the 11 signature cocktails you can choose from like Momma's Martini (Vodka, Passionfruit, Raspberries & Prosecco), Smoke’n (Mezcal, grapefruit syrup, lime, simple syrup, hot sauce and soda) and the Sweet n’ Sour (whiskey, maple syrup, lemon and egg white).  Sugar Momma also has wines by the glass and bottle in addition to Brooklyn Lager and an Oyster Bay IPA. So if you're near the Seaport District, come and check out the Financial District's newest addition.
