PDT, which is short for “Please Don’t Tell,” is one of the worst-kept secrets in history. The latter-day speakeasy accessed via a vintage phone booth inside Crif Dogs in the East Village has long been a popular place to take out-of-towners for a taste of the “real” New York. And for the month of May, the bar will become even realer as it takes over the highly visible space on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. PDT partner Jeff Bell will be on hand to concoct his signature cocktails, this time against a backdrop of striking panoramic views. As at the original on St. Marks Place, PDT 2 will be serving Crif’s deep-fried hot dogs “with the works.” The pop-up will be open from 7 to 10 p.m. on weeknights, from 5 to 10 p.m. on weekends.
