Burritt Room's Winning Pair

Bar manger Joel Baker's just released fall cocktail list at the Burritt Room impressed us so much that we had to make this week's choice a rare selection of two cocktails–inspired perhaps by urgency of the news that Charlie Palmer is taking over the hotel. While his PR folks tell us that no changes in the bar program are expected, the menu is so well put together it would be a shame to miss.

The Drink Without a Name #2 ($10, Partida Reposado Tequila, Qi White Tea Liqueur, dry vermouth) is like a tequila Martini, with light bitterness, floral, and sweetness. We imaged ourselves ordering one as aperitif, with a crispness and strength that cleaned and warmed up our appetites.
