Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails
review by Eric Vrtis

Chartreuse is the color and focus of this space in Midtown, a stone’s throw from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Owner Sandy Levine has amassed an enviable collection of the French digestif, with bottles dating back to the 1940s, plus Elixir Végétal, Liqueur du 9e Centenaire ...Read the full review

BlackTail
review by Deanna Gonnella

Like The Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, which takes its name from the Irish gang that terrorized Lower Manhattan in the mid-1800s, the newest place from Jack McGarry and Sean Muldoon commemorates another piece of NYC ...Read the full review

Achilles Heel
review by Zach B. Siegel

This neighborhood bar, from Brooklyn restaurateur Andrew Tarlow, excels in simple pleasures. John Connolly’s wine list favors the rustic and the versatile, shining a light on unheralded French wines, from Aveyron to Vin de France, most well under $100. Chef Lee Desrosiers’ menu, which changes daily, re-imagines the possibilities ...Read the full review

Income Tax
review by John Lenart

A wine bar named after a classic cocktail, a bottle list that outsells by-the-glass selections, and a menu designed around the wine list: This is Income Tax, a new reason to head to Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood. Owner Nelson Finch ...Read the full review

The Treasury
review by Erik Tennyson

The Treasury, set in the airy marble interior of the Beaux Arts Standard Oil Building, offers a pleasant escape from the packed streets of the Financial District. Unwind while sipping on a Smoke & Mirrors (Anchor Old Tom Gin, smoked tea, pineapple gomme, bitters). Or forgo the cocktails for ...Read the full review

Smuggler’s Cove
review by Erik Tennyson

Behind a wall of tinted glass on a quiet block in Hayes Valley, Smuggler’s Cove is a Tiki oasis that looks like it was decorated by Captain Hook after a few too many Mai Tais. The drink menu features more than 80 cocktails from every corner of Tiki-dom, as ...Read the full review

Prizefighter
review by Erik Tennyson

After stints at Bourbon & Branch and Beretta in SF, Jon Santer crossed the Bay in 2011 to open Prizefighter in Emeryville. The drinks lean toward brisk refreshment rather than spirituous weight, perfect companions to the large outdoor patio and the East Bay’s fog-free afternoons. Start with a Oaxacan ...Read the full review

Bar Agricole
review by Erik Tennyson

At Bar Agricole, proprietor Thad Vogler mixes fresh ingredients with a tightly curated spirits list that stresses small-production artisan products—it’s the spirituous equivalent of an indie record shop. Try the Ti’ Punch, made with the wonderfully grassy La Favorite Rhum Agricole Blanc and cane syrup sourced from ...Read the full review

Benjamin Cooper
review by Erik Tennyson

To find Benjamin Cooper, walk through the lobby of the G Hotel off Union Square, up a flight of stairs and through an unmarked black door. Hidden and unassuming, it’s run by SF bar veterans Brian Felley and Mo Hodges, and they clearly know their stuff. The cocktail ...Read the full review

Trick Dog
review by Lou Bustamante

The home base of the Bon Vivants, the cocktail and design firm run by Josh Harris and Scott Baird, Trick Dog is as famous for its menu design and conceptual hijinks as for the cocktails themselves, but the cocktails are what keep the place packed. A recent list took  ...Read the full review

The Commodore
review by Bill Ward

It opened in 1920 as a speakeasy, and closed after an explosion in 1978. Now The Commodore is back, providing a superlative setting to get your F. Scott and Zelda on. The elegantly refurbished Art Deco rooms would make its heyday’s habitués, from the Fitzgeralds (who lived blocks away) ...Read the full review
