WD-50 (at the bar)
Having had dinner elsewhere in the neighborhood, no outrageous prix fixe dinner this time…but a warm hello for Jaferul (Jaffe) plus one of his beautiful manhattans will do in a pinch. Brown is usually my winter drink but for some reason he enticed me to cooler times and a warmer cocktail.
Whistle Pig rye and some Italian vermouth plus the simple magic of Jaffe.
A friend’s sake was also inviting and wish I could remember what it was. All in all, a perfect summer night respite whichever way you go.
Good to know that one can stop into a dining temple but just relax at the bar, be well taken care of and enjoy a lovely libation – making notes about which menu you’ll return for.
