    Very good service. Quiet open to young professionals too. The cocktail page starts on p.64 of the drink menu. A good sign. ;)

    One of our new faves. Fantastic vibe and atmosphere. Gougeres (amazing cheese puffs) are a must. You could basically point to anything on the drink list and you'll be golden.

    A great place to learn about alcohol. Let your librarian guide you. The atmosphere is customized towards great whiskey consumption - leather chairs, darkish lights and bottles surrounding you.

    Deviled eggs with bacon crumbles and foie gras mousse were amazing! I liked the "make your own scotch" set up but the pours are tiny.

    They have an entire book of drinks. Quite expensive and very slow service. Although, you'll probably need the extra time to read through the big book.

    The terrible suit-ridden and uptight vibe is completely made up for by their absolutely amazing selection and fantastic service. I would recommend getting a flight of your favorite liquor genre.
