    Craft cocktails. Justin is my favorite. If Pork Shank is on special, get it and get ready 🎉 and the sticky toffee pudding is phenomenal

    Excellent location, great ambience, mediocre service, good-but-not-great food. Ste Ellie [in basement] is a top-tier cocktail destination.

    Excellent place for cocktails, one of the few bars I know that carries Leopold Brothers Navy Strength Gin. Highly suggest for a nick cocktail.

    Start with the cheese plate (add charcuterie too) with whole grain mustard, pickled vegetables and concord grape sauce. Then get an app, like the panzanella salad with blue cheese (photo).

    Wonderful meals here. The Colorado lamb is excellent. The duck breast is good, too, but mine was a little too rare, to the point of almost being cold. Get it medium rare. The corn fritters were nice.

    Possibly the best meal I've ever had. World-class meat and cocktails. Try as many cocktails as possible and split the 42 oz porterhouse for two if you dare.

    In a town known for craft beer, Colt & Gray is awesome at craft cocktails. Tell the expert bartenders the flavors you like and let them work their magic.

    Go for the Sazerac and the mean foieburger. You will not regret it. Esp if you've got KB behind the bar. Sticky toffee pudding will finish the night right.
