Faulkner is the one with coconut-washed bourbon.
And Proust is a punch with calvados.
Valuable notes for the BoardRoom, a seductive, postwar-Parisian hideaway from Patina serving cocktails titled for famous scribes and burgers containing foie gras, opening Thursday inside of Kendall’s Brasserie in Downtown.
You’ll find this dark beauty behind an illuminated “On Air” sign over a door on the Music Center’s flank. Handy when you and a date require a sip with a bite before Zoot Suit or whatever.
But you’ll also want to make a reservation to linger some night. Because good things happen here between the string of bare bulbs and the leather banquettes.
A Salazar vet is mixing William Faulkners (an Old Fashioned adaptation with coconut-washed bourbon) and crafting three-course cocktail tastings for guests, while you guys are getting that Proust punch made tableside from a punch cart.
There will often be jazz, bossa nova and blues artists playing the small stage. That’s why all the swaying.
There’s a menu with escargot shooters, foie gras burgers and French dips.
Oh, the things Proust wrote about French dips.
