Here’s the breakdown...
Driftwood Kitchen: Downstairs, a long concrete bar, custom metalwork and rustic tables. Upstairs, a view of the Capitol, ringed with retractable glass walls. (Take a look here.)
Kitty’s Saloon: Rough-hewn wood, Winchester-style rifles and a buffalo head. It’s the kind of bar that Eastwood would hang out at. But maybe that’s just the Eastwood poster talking. (Check it out here.)
Driftwood Kitchen: An American menu with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern touches. This means: lamb tartare, housemade harissa and a bar snack of cayenne caramel corn. Get some of that.
Kitty’s Saloon: “Contemporary redneck cuisine.” This means: wings with sausage stuffed under the skin, fried alligator tail, bourbon-braised bison short ribs.
Driftwood Kitchen: Interesting tap beers like Ithaca Flower Power and cocktails like the Jamaican Bride (bourbon, coconut syrup, Cocchi).
Kitty’s Saloon: Rolling Rock for three bucks. Allagash Curieux for... a bit more. And 20 solid American whiskeys by one-ounce or two-ounce pours.
Get the two. Do it.
