I realized something last night…..Pat at the Shaved Duck is one damn good bartender. The drinks there are really really good. Yes, I mostly drink beer there….but he made a Manhattan for Si last night that was simply amazing. The drink menu there is innovative, delicious and so, so reasonably priced. There ingredients are freshly prepared….for instance, there is a jar of fresh peach puree, house preserved olives and cherries, fresh picked herbs…and always a BIG bowl of fresh citrus. Good job, Pat!!! I’ve decided that next visit I will have the mojito….served with a sprinkling of rosemary….reminds me of Simon’s famous rosemary pineapple martinis.
