This is night and this is weekend:
They do table service and as we sit down we are presented with a menu that boasts Cuban inspired cocktails and locally brewed beer. Me; I order the Mi Corazon a coconut based cocktail with Fresno Pepper infused Cachaca and lime. Cachaca, of course, being the fermented sugar cane liquor originating probably from Brazil; caparinhas anyone?
The cocktail is appetising. It is frothy white, with two actual peppers floating on top of the concoction. As I sip it the chile is biting, but luckily the drink is softened adequately by the coconut milk to make it supable. Honestly, I have never had such a strong cocktail. I was impressed by its daring overtures and pleased by its subtler notes. Dang. Good.
The Cowboy had ordered a Brooklyn Summer Ale, which came in a can unpoured and unopened. He was charmed; he has a pet-peeve against beer being served in a bottle and then poured partly into a glass at restaurants. He likes beer out of cans and bottles. As a result this is all very exciting to him too.
