As Seen On Yelp.... "Was there for pre dinner drinks last night. After spending my day on yelp reading about this place I was excited. We arrived around 6:30pm and there were a few tables available... we chose the one by the fireplace. The ambiance is oaky, rich and intimate. The place was beyond classy and service was impecable.
I decided to go with a glass of red wine. It was a 2004 Cab from Spain and it was one of the tastiest wines I have ever had. Simply an amazing glass of wine... loved it so much I ordered another ;) My date had a side car (this is kind of his drink of choice when it comes to fancy cocktail places). While I do not love brandy/whiskey/any dark liquor base for my drink I will say that this is the best side car he has had thus far. It was lovely.
In between rounds they brought out complimentary cheese croquetes and they were heavenly. Really a nice touch.I would/could have eaten 20 of them... yum!
The thing is, fancy drinks get me excited. I look forward to a perfectly executed drink. It is rare to find a cozy intimate ambiance paired with a perfect drink, so the Brandy library was an absolute score for us. I think this will be our new go to fancy drinks spot... in addition to Angel's Share.
Cannot wait to return on Wed nights when they have live jazz at 8pm!
