Things to do for April 25, 2013
Bento Boxes, Absinthe and Bartender Tables
The weekend shoots, the weekend scores.
Sumi Robata Bar: Now with Bento Boxes
You’ve been impressed with what this izakaya can do with fried chicken and sake during dinner. Now, they’d like to demonstrate their facility with a bento box lunch, filling it with options like teriyaki-glazed salmon and skirt steak. Yes, the chicken will be standing by if you miss it.
Sampling Five Types of Absinthe
Absinthe. The mystery. The lore. The weird little slotted spoons. The Savoy would like to give you a refresher course on the basics of van Gogh’s favorite liqueur via a tasting of five different kinds. Your class notes are going to be very sloppy.
Like a Pre-WhiskeyFest WhiskeyFest
Pre-drinking. Pre-partying. Breakfast. Whatever you call it, that little drink before you head out to a big party is essential. So the night before WhiskeyFest, there’s this tasting, which includes 75 American whiskeys. If that isn’t enough... there’s also a bourbon glaze on their chicken brochettes.
You’re at a Place Called Vertigo
Looks like the weather will cooperate tomorrow for the big reveal of the patio makeover at Vertigo. The major addition is the Bartender’s Booth, a special six-person cove that’s like a chef’s table at a restaurant. Only here the bartender is the chef. And you drink dinner.
The Swell New Brunch in Town
It’s early Sunday afternoon. You’re groggy. What you need: champagne, some lobster and caviar-topped salmon. This three-course extravaganza from Acadia should start your motor. But you could also do with a dose of handcrafted donuts. Donuts keep you grounded when you eat caviar.
