We have just emerged into the fading afternoon light from PDT, the soon-to-open speakeasy owned and operated by Crif Dogs' Brian Shebairo on St. Mark's Place. Inside—via the secret entrance through Crif Dogs, that grungy basement hot dog hangout, for that low-end high-end feel—we spoke with mixologist and consultant James Meehan, the man responsible for the "beverage program."
