just to be sure everyone knows this, if you want to see one of the best bartenders in the business run a room, Phil Ward works at Long Island Bar on Tuesdays and Fridays. We went last night and got to see him in action.. Holy shit, it's like watching a true professional in action. It's effortless and second nature and well, the results are pretty fantastic too..
Started with a Oaxaca Old Fashion, moved on to Improved Pendennis Club which was "Gin, Apricot, Lime Juice, Peychaud’s Bitters" had a really lovely Apricot and Floralness too it.. The apricot was provided by an eau de vie as well as a apricot liqueur. Miss A had a Dolores Del Rio which was salty and had passion fruit.. This was super refreshing and that salt was super interesting.
Fun night.. Their food menu looks like exactly what you want at a bar..
