MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With a motto like “Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome,” it's no surprise that the subterranean space housing this modern-day tavern and whiskey bar is as inviting as they come. Surrounded by backlit bottles of top-notch spirits under wrought-iron lattice work light panels, guests gather for convivial conversation and great drinks.

Fans of Bourbon will delight in the Derby Day Mule, which swaps out vodka for Buffalo Trace. Brown spirits are celebrated; note that hefty supply of Pappy Van Winkle. Pair your libation with a snack of parmesan-battered cauliflower tots with blue cheese dressing, before tucking in to the delightfully rich squid ink seafood pasta tossed in a pesto cream sauce. End on a high note—think Bourbon-infused milkshake with house-made ice cream.
