Celebrate the Summer of Gatsby with a Bobo Gin Rickey! The Bobo townhouse was once a notorious speakeasy and it’s our duty to pay homage to the roaring twenties, as well as to F. Scott Fitzgerald, who favored gin above all else. The Gin Rickey is a perfect summer afternoon pick-me-up, and also the only drink mentioned by name in The Great Gatsby. What better cocktail to sip in celebration! (In true speak easy fashion, our Gin Ricky is a secret, only available upon request at the bar. Don’t be shy.)
We’re beginning to feel nostalgic and lighthearted whenever the sun peeks through the clouds, reminding us that warm weather does indeed approach. With the refreshing, cool treats of summer on our minds, it’s our pleasure to introduce our surprising and delicious cocktail sodas, a boozy menu in collaboration with P & H Soda Co (Brooklyn, NY) designed to transport you back to the long, lazy summer days of childhood—with a twist. Think Root Beer made with Turbot, Santa Theresa, pineapple and lime; an old fashioned Sarsaparilla divinely mixed with Old Overholt and lemon; Hibiscus combined with Mt. Gay Silver and Pernod; Cream Soda concocted of Lilet and Akvita… Stop in and indulge in a grown up version of these classic refreshments.
For brunch ($45 three-course prix-fixe ) choose from tempting plates like our soft shell crab sandwich with green apple mustard, grilled salmon with corn succotash, or pineapple glazed Virginia ham with house made biscuits.
For a more formal supper ($58 three-course prix-fixe), offerings include some of our most popular dishes, such as the Niman Ranch Lamb Duo, whole baked Branzino, and seared diver scallops with English Pea Risotto, black trumpet and hazelnut pesto. Finish the meal with Fraisier en Verrine, prepared with sable Breton, Chantilly, vanilla ice cream, and basil and strawberry coulis.
