PDT at Eastern Standard
Following up on a drinkboston post on the bartender exchange between PDT in NYC and ES, we headed over to ES last night. In addition to some quality drink making from the ES crew, Daniel from PDT pulled out a couple of amazing cocktails for us, which went down very well with the Grilled Cheese and Nicoise salad. What a way to start the week.
re: Bob Dobalina
the 19th century - bourbon, creme de cacao, lemon, and... i think lillet. a riff on the 20th century (which is made with gin). Better than it sounds, but the next 2 were better.
The professor - martinique rum, punt e mes, and tawny port (but he made it with the 6 grapes). and orange peel on the rim. This was unexpected, amazing, and well worth the trip all by itself. But the last...
the Dewey D - rye, Lusteau East Indian Solera Sherry, and aperol, with the same orange peel treatment. Wow.
Tonight is his last night, I think - worth the trip...
