You may already know about Pesce, an award-winning restaurant whose chef/owner, Ruggero Gadaldi, once cooked for Pope John Paul II. It's biggest secret isn't in the kitchen, though we love its outstanding Mediterranean small plates, rather it is behind the bar. We suggest that you pull up a barstool and watch Will and his colleagues mix some of the best cocktails in the city - and ask them for The Daily Secret special cocktail.
Ask Will to peruse his hand written drink recipe book complete with his own sketches. As a former bartender, I can tell you that this book is a work of art. In addition to more than 100 recipes, many of his own, he has included hand-written quotes that will keep you occupied for hours. Head to Pesce for the food and return for the cocktails and excellent service. Enjoy - and please say hi to Will for us! P.S. Ask Will, Wednesday through Saturday, for the off-the-menu cocktail called, well, The Daily Secret and you will receive this fabulous cocktail at a special price. Enjoy!.
